The Handmaid's Tale

Серия: "-"

From the author of Alias Grace and the Maddaddam trilogy: here is the # 1 New York Times bestseller and seminal work of speculative fiction, now an Emmy Award-winning Hulu series starring Elisabeth Moss, Samira Wiley, and Joseph Fiennes. Includes a new introduction by the author. Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now. Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force.
