– The Handmaids Tale –

Margaret Atwood

Frighteningly foresighted when it gets to the latest news.

A dystopian novel about Offred living in gilead, formerly known as the United states of America.

After a revolution the country turned into a patriarchal society with religious fanaticism.

Among the biggest losers of the new system are women. They belong to the lowest ranks. They are not allowed to have money or property. Reading and writing are also strictly forbidden.

As one of the few remaining fertile women Offred is forced to be a handmaid which means to produce children for the Commanders. 

She is telling us her story and we would do well to listen carefully.
