PRAISE FOR THE TESTAMENTS:

‘Everything The Handmaid’s Tale fans wanted and more. Prepare to hold your breath throughout, and to cry real tears at the end’ Stylist

‘Atwood challenges us constantly and poses the question that lies like a pearl inside the shell of this frighteningly readable novel, “Before you sit in judgement, how would you behave in Gilead?”’ Sunday Telegraph

‘She manages to write about the darkest and most terrifying parts of human psychology in a way that is still deeply funny and full of dark strange hope’ Naomi Alderman, author of The Power

A plump, pacy, witty and tightly plotted page-turner… Atwood is on top form’ Observer

‘She is one of the greatest writers of the past century’ Sunday Times

‘How did she manage to make darkness feel so effortless? How did she think to inject humour where no humour should exist? Because she’s Margaret Atwood, and she can do anything’ Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House
