Set 15 years after the originals famously ambiguous climax, The Testaments
promises to bring us ever closer to the dark forces that underpin the Republic of Gilead.
In this electrifying sequel to The Handmaid's Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the question that has tantalised readers for decades: What happened to Offred?
'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 weve been living in.' - Margaret Atwood
And so I step up, into the darkness within; or else the light.
At the end of The Handmaid's Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead. With The Testaments, the wait for answers is over.
Since The Handmaid's Tale was first published in 1985, Margaret Atwood's vision has only grown in significance, becoming a rallying call at women's marches around the world following the election of Donald Trump, and taking on a new life in an acclaimed, Emmy Award-winning television adaptation.
To celebrate the release of Atwood's monumental sequel, we'll be holding a special one-off book group. Reading The Handmaid's Tale, we'll discuss and dissect the hugely successful novel ahead of the publication of The Testaments.
