Author Margaret Atwood returns to the ‘repressive theocracy she created out of the ruins of present-day America’ in the much anticipated sequel ‘The Testaments.’


As NPR notes, Atwood’s dystopian novel ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ ends with main character Offred “stepping into a mysterious black van, on her way to freedom — or to arrest.” The sequel picks up 15 years later.

You can hear Atwood’s reading of the first three chapters of the ‘The Testaments’ here.
