Meanwhile, it performs a hard-eyed autopsy on themes of impersonation and self-impersonation, revealing so many layers of contemporary deception and self-deception that we don't know whether to laugh or cry»

Guardian

«Gloriously madcap . . . You only pause in your laughter when you realise that, in its constituent parts, the world she depicts here is all too horribly plausible»

Stephanie Merritt, Observer

«The bestselling author who shot to fame 30 years ago with The Handmaid's Tale is still at her darkly comic best»

Sunday Times

«Atwood's gift is to take what's already out there and nudge it to the next level . . . The Heart Goes Last is all at once thrilling, funny, grim - and shockingly convincing»

Erica Wagner, Harper's Bazaar

«What distinguishes Atwood's apocalypticism is her insistence that we have brought it on ourselves. It's not meteor strikes, or aliens that destroy our world. It's us . . . I loved it»

John Sutherland, The Times

«An arresting perspective on the confluence of information, freedom, and security in the modern age»

New Yorker

«Captivating. . . . Thrilling. . . . Margaret Atwood [is] a living legend»

New York Times Book Review
