THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLER AND WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE

'The Testaments is Atwood at her best . . . To read this book is to feel the world turning' Anne Enright


The Republic of Gilead is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, two girls with radically different experiences of the regime come face to face with the legendary, ruthless Aunt Lydia. But how far will each go for what she believes?

Now with additional material: book club discussion points and an interview with Margaret Atwood about the real-life events that inspired The Testaments and The Handmaid's Tale.

PRAISE FOR THE TESTAMENTS:

'Everything The Handmaid's Tale fans wanted and more. Prepare to hold your breath throughout, and to cry real tears at the end' Stylist

'Atwood challenges us constantly and poses the question that lies like a pearl inside the shell of this frighteningly readable novel, "Before you sit in judgement, how would you behave in Gilead?''' Sunday Telegraph

'She manages to write about the darkest and most terrifying parts of human psychology in a way that is still deeply funny and full of dark strange hope' Naomi Alderman, author of The Power

'
A plump, pacy, witty and tightly plotted page-turner... Atwood is on top form' Observer

'She is one of the greatest writers of the past century' Sunday Times

'How did she manage to make darkness feel so effortless? How did she think to inject humour where no humour should exist? Because she's Margaret Atwood, and she can do anything' Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House
