MOST LOVED. MOST RED. Ten must-read modern classics.
'Nolite te bastardes carborundorum. Don't let the bastards grind you down.'
Imagine a world where women's bodies are controlled by men. Where society has descended into religious patriarchy and censorship. Where the environment has been destroyed and a powerful few hold the reins to all wealth and freedom. Welcome to Gilead. This is the story of Offred, a Handmaid forced into sexual servitude, in the country once known as the USA.
Atwood's Handmaids have become a symbol of feminist resistance. This masterpiece blurs the boundaries between fiction and news headlines.
