Praise be: Margaret Atwood has published a sequel to ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’
Almost 35 years after “The Handmaid’s Tale” shocked the world, Margaret Atwood has finally given birth to “The Testaments.” This isn’t just the most anticipated novel of the year; it’s one of the most anticipated sequels of the modern age — like Harper Lee’s “Go Set a Watchman” flying in on Harry Potter’s broom. Last fall, the Annunciation of “The Testaments” was heralded around the world. In August, blessed reviewers received preview copies printed with a false title and author, lest the book’s revelations slip preemptively into the wrong hands. A week before the novel was published, it was already shortlisted for the Booker Prize. And on Sept. 10, Atwood’s sold-out, publication-day appearance at the National Theatre in London will be live broadcast to 1,300 cinemas from Canada to Malta. Blessed be the fruit!
