Description du produit

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She has 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.

Revue de presse

"Out of a narrative shadowed by terror, gleam sharp perceptions, brilliant intense images and sardonic wit" (Peter KempIndependent)

"'The Handmaid's Tale is both a superlative exercise in science fiction and a profoundly felt moral story'" (Angela Carter)

"Moving, vivid and terrifying. I only hope it's not prophetic" (Conor Cruise O'BrienThe Listener)

"The images of brilliant emptiness are one of the most striking aspects of this novel about totalitarian blindness...the effect is chilling" (Linda TaylorSunday Times)

"Powerful...admirable" (Robert IrwinTime Out)
