Margaret Atwood on The Handmaid’s Tale

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&region=bottom-well&WT.nav=bottom-well

I had forgotten it was published in 1984. That is the one on my bookshelf.

One thought on “Margaret Atwood on The Handmaid’s Tale

  1. 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
