The Handmaid's Tale
- Bewertet: Einband: gebundene Ausgabe
Wunderschöner Einband! Faszinierende Geschichte. Die Beschreibungen rund um das karge und ungerechte Leben der Mägde sind so realistisch, dass man meinen könnte es handle sich um eine Autobiografie. Die aktuelle Serie, welche dazu produziert wurde, ist sehr an das Buch angelehnt und genial umgesetzt.
First published in 1985, this is a novel of such power that the reader is unable to forget its images and its forecast. It is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force. "A novel that brilliantly illuminates some of the darker interconnections between politics and sex".--"The Washington Post Book World".
