Zusatztext “A chilling invitation no Atwood fan can resist . . . The Testaments reminds us of the power of truth in the face of evil.” — People “Margaret Atwood’s powers are on full display . . . Everyone should read The Testaments .” — Los Angeles Times “A fast, immersive narrative that’s as propulsive as it is melodramatic.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times “ The Testaments is worthy of the literary classic it continues.

Klappentext NOW WITH ADDITIONAL MATERIAL #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE FOR FICTION 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. 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.
