Folio Society THE HANDMAID'S TALE Margaret Atwood SEALED
The Handmaid’s Tale
Factory Sealed - Shrink Wrapped with slipcase
Illustrated by Anna and Elena Balbusso
Introduced by Margaret Atwood
‘Science fiction has monsters and spaceships; speculative fiction could really happen.’ Margaret Atwood’s chilling cautionary tale is illustrated by the Balbusso sisters.
Narrator Offred is a Handmaid serving the Republic of Gilead – formerly part of the United States. Her role is to bear children for her Commander, whose wife is unable to conceive. If Offred refuses, she will be hanged or sent to die of radiation sickness in the Colonies. Yet she can remember a different life, when she had a home, a husband, and – most agonizingly – her own child.
