Want to know what author Margaret Atwood of Handmaid’s Tale thinks happens in the Republic of Gilead 15 years in the future?

Now you can.

Atwood’s newest book, The Testaments is out and I gotta tell you, I’m disappointed we don’t have it all fixed by now. In my brain we’ll have ourselves an election in 2020, vote in progressive, blue thinkers, pass the Equal Rights Amendment and put some teeth behind the wage gap. We will leap forward, not step back.


But what if we don’t? What if this puritanical misogynist government we have today has an extra 15 years to bubble and burp up racism, sexism, and inequality?


Atwood began writing the follow-up right after Trump was elected. I’m halfway through it, and if you’re a big fan of the Hulu show, I highly recommend giving it a read.

You can have it by tomorrow given Jeff Bezos’ skills. Click here.
