Before The MaddAddam Trilogy, there was The Handmaid’s Tale. Margaret Atwood’s classic novel is a stunning Orwellian vision of the near future that is as relevant and prophetic as ever, and “deserves an honored place on the small shelf of cautionary tales that have entered modern folklore—a place next to, and by no means inferior to, Brave New World and 1984.” (Publishers Weekly) Now available in a gorgeous new collectible edition.

This is the story of Offred, one of the unfortunate “Handmaids” under the new social order who have only one purpose: to breed. Offred lives in the home of the Commander and his wife. She is allowed out once a day to the food market, she is not permitted to read, and she is hoping the Commander makes her pregnant, because she is only valued if her ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she was an independent woman, had a job of her own, a husband and child. But all of that is gone now…everything has changed.

MARGARET ATWOOD is celebrated around the world for her more than forty books of fiction, poetry, and critical essays. Her award-winning novels include The Handmaid’s Tale, Cat’s Eye, Alias Grace, and The Blind Assassin, as well as The MaddAddam Trilogy: Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood, and MaddAddam. Her books of short stories include Moral Disorder and, most recently, Stone Mattress. She lives in Toronto. www.margaretatwood.ca

“A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex...just as the world of Orwell’s 1984 gripped our imaginations, so will the world of Atwood’s handmaid!” Washington Post Book World

"Margaret Atwood's novels tickle our deepest sexual and psychological fears. The Handmaid's Tale is a sly and beautifully crafted story about the fate of an ordinary woman caught off guard by extraordinary events.... A compelling fable of our time." Glamour

"This visionary novel, in which God and Government are joined, and America is run as a Puritanical Theocracy, can be read as a companion volume to Orwell's 1984--its verso, in fact. It gives you the same degree of chill, even as it suggests the varieties of tyrannical experience; it evokes the same kind of horror even as its mordant wit makes you smile." E. L. Doctorow
