Continuing the dystopian theme, here is an excellent essay by Margaret Atwood on her 1984 novel The Handmaid’s Tale from this week’s New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/10/books/review/margaret-atwood-handmaids-tale-age-of-trump.html?hpw&rref=books&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=well-region®ion=bottom-well&WT.nav=bottom-well
I had forgotten it was published in 1984. That is the one on my bookshelf.
Thanks for calling my attention to the Margaret Atwood article in the NYT. Even though I read it every day I missed it. The Handmaid’s Tale was one of the most frightening books I have ever read and I have never forgotten it. Bev
