The Handmaid's Tale Deluxe Edition

by Margaret Atwood

This beautiful edition of Margaret Atwood’s seminal work of speculative fiction features a leatherette cover, gilt edging, and ribbon marker—a perfect gift for book lovers and fans of the Hulu series. 

 

The Handmaid’s Tale is a novel of such power that the reader will be unable to forget its image and its forecast. Set in the near future, it describes life in what was once the United States and is now called the Republic of Gilead, a monotheocracy that has reacted to social unrest and a sharply declining birthrate by reverting to, and going beyond, the repressive intolerance of the original Puritans. The Handmaid’s Tale is funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and a tour de force.

    The Handmaid's Tale deserves the highest praise.” —San Francisco Chronicle 

     

    “Atwood takes many trends which exist today and stretches them to their logical and chilling conclusions . . . An excellent novel about the directions our lives are taking . . . Read it while it's still allowed.” —Houston Chronicle
