Margaret Atwood set to release follow up to The Handmaid's Tale: The Testaments

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood is the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, and is narrated by three female characters.

It’s set 15 years after Offred’s final scene, the moment when the van door slams and she is about to be driven off to an uncertain future – one either of freedom, more torture and imprisonment, or even death. We just don’t know.

Talking about the book, Margaret Atwood said, ‘Dear Readers: Everything you've ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we've been living in.’

The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September 2019. You can pre-order the book from the following shops: Waterstones | Amazon
