Reprint. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 1986.

NOW A SMASH-HIT CHANNEL 4 TV SERIESOffred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead.

She has only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness.

But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America explores a world in which oppression of women, and repression of the truth, have become justified.
