See the six contenders for this top literary prize.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood’s famous novel The Handmaid’s Tale was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1986; the tradition continues with her upcoming sequel, The Testaments. 

From the publisher: “When the van door slammed on Offred’s future at the end of The Handmaid’s Tale, readers had no way of telling what lay ahead for her – freedom, prison or death. With The Testaments, the wait is over.”

From Booker judge Peter Florence: “There is a strange pleasure in knowing the secret of the publishing juggernaut that is The Testaments, and an exquisite agony in being unable to share it yet. So this: it’s a savage and beautiful novel that speaks to us today with conviction and power. The bar is set unusually high for Atwood. She soars. I can’t wait for Saturday when everyone can read it.”
