$220.00

Margaret Atwood’s fiction is almost unprecedented in its equal acclaim by the general public and critics alike. With The Handmaid’s Tale, she provided us with one of the best speculative fiction novels of the last 100 years, and arguably the best feminist speculative fiction ever written. It won the first Arthur C. Clarke Award. It was nominated for the Nebula Award and the Booker Prize. With its criticisms of patriarchal oppression, Christian radicalism, and reproductive rights, The Handmaid’s Tale has found itself a focal point in cultural conversations about modern American political ideologies. It has also been adapted to a hugely popular television series, starring Elisabeth Moss.
