The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one option: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like all dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. A brilliant and astutely perceived evocation of twenty-first-century America.

Recensioner i media

"Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic" -- Conor Cruise O'Brien * The Listener * "The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story" -- Angela Carter "Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit" -- Peter Kemp * Independent * "The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness...the effect is chilling" -- Linda Taylor * Sunday Times * "Powerful...admirable" -- Robert Irwin * Time Out *
