#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE

The Testaments is a modern masterpiece, a powerful novel that can be read on its own or as a companion to Margaret Atwood's classic, The Handmaid's Tale.

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: Aunt Lydia. Her complex past and uncertain future unfold in surprising and pivotal ways.

With The Testaments, Margaret Atwood 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.

Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in more than forty-five countries, is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, critical essays, and graphic novels. In addition to
The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning TV series, her novels include
Cat’s Eye, short-listed for the 1989 Booker Prize;
Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy;
The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize;
Oryx and Crake, short-listed for the 2003 Man Booker Prize;
The Year of the Flood,
MaddAddam; and
Hag-Seed. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award. In 2019, she was made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to literature.

Sehr gute, wenn auch nicht zwingend notwendige, Fortsetzung des modernen Klassikers von bleibender Aktualität. Die Lektüre hat mich jedenfalls mit dem gleichen Entsetzen erfüllt wie das Original und die Serie.
