    SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE

    Margaret Atwood's dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale, has become a modern classic—and now she brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion in this riveting sequel.

    More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid's Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results. Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.

    As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

    O avtorju

    -Margaret Atwood-

    Margaret Atwood (1939) je ena najbolj znanih kanadskih pisateljic. Napisala je vrsto romanov (Preročišče, Na površje, Slepi morilec) in bila večkrat nagrajena za svoje pesniško delo. Leta 2017 je postala dobitnica kar dveh prestižnih mednarodnih nagrad – nagrade Franza Kafke in nagrade za mir združenja nemških založnikov in knjigotržcev.

    Njeno najbolj odmevno delo ostaja Deklina zgodba iz leta 1985. Roman o razčlovečeni družbi je dolgo kraljeval na prodajnih lestvicah, znova pa se je zavihtel nanje, ko so po njem posneli odmevno televizijsko serijo.

    »Roman, ki sijajno osvetljuje prepletenost politike in seksa … Tako kot se nam je v zavest vtisnil svet Orwellovega 1984, se nam bo tudi svet iz Dekline zgodbe.« - The Washington Post Book World
