Publisher Description

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Handmaid's Tale written by Margaret Atwood, read by Elisabeth Moss, with Bradley Whitford, Amy Landecker and Ann Dowd.

READ BY ELISABETH MOSS, STAR OF THE HIT CHANNEL 4 TV SERIES

The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function- to breed. If she deviates, she will, like 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.

Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

Her novels include Cat's Eye, The Robber Bride, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin and the MaddAddam trilogy. Her 1985 classic, The Handmaid's Tale, went back into the bestseller charts with the election of Donald Trump, when the Handmaids became a symbol of resistance against the disempowerment of women, and with the 2017 release of the award-winning Channel 4 TV series.

Atwood has won numerous awards including the Booker Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Imagination in Service to Society, the Franz Kafka Prize, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade and the PEN USA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Review

"One of Atwood's finest pieces of work serves as a great reminder of what humanity is capable of." -- Hannah Dunn Red "Margaret Atwood is a wry and perceptive observer of society as well as an original storyteller" -- Cecilia Heyes Psychologist "Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception" Essence "This is a novel pervaded by violence, sex, terror, but also by contemplation, analysis and - occasionally - by hope... Atwood shockingly reveals what we could be capable of." -- Elly McCausland Cherwell Newspaper "Compulsively readable" Daily Telegraph
