The Testaments, by Margaret Atwood
** LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2019 **
In this brilliant sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the questions that have tantalised readers for decades. When the van door slammed on Offred's future at the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead.
With The Testaments, the wait is over. Margaret Atwood's sequel picks up the story 15 years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead. `Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book.
Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.' Margaret Atwood `The literary event of the year.' Guardian 'It's terrifying and exhilarating.'
