“I take such an interest in covers, having designed a few of my own ... so I was very happy that Noma Bar [the artist] took it on," Margaret Atwood said to Entertainment Weekly, which broke the news of the new cover. "The cover is simple and elegant, yet with a concealed puzzle. The back is the front, the front is the back. It’s like the tapestry done by Mary, Queen of Scots: In My End Is My Beginning.”

After a highly successful TV adaptation of her bestselling novel The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Atwood announced the welcome news last year that she was working on a sequel, The Testaments. “Dear Readers: Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings is the inspiration for this book,” Atwood said in a statement. “Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.”

Now you can see the highly anticipated cover as shown to EW here.

Preorder your copy today to be one of the first to return to Gilead!

DESCRIPTION

In this brilliant sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, acclaimed author Margaret Atwood answers the question that has tantalized readers for decades: What happens to Offred?

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. 
 
Margaret Atwood’s sequel picks up the story fifteen years after Offred stepped into the unknown, with the explosive testaments of three female narrators from Gilead. 
 

Margaret Atwood, whose work has been published in more than forty-five countries, is the author of more than fifty books of fiction, poetry, critical essays, and graphic novels. In addition to The Handmaid’s Tale, now an award-winning TV series, her novels include Cat’s Eye, short-listed for the 1989 Booker Prize; Alias Grace, which won the Giller Prize in Canada and the Premio Mondello in Italy; The Blind Assassin, winner of the 2000 Booker Prize; The MaddAddam Trilogy; and Hag-Seed. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade, the Franz Kafka Prize, the PEN Center USA Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Los Angeles Times Innovator’s Award. She lives in Toronto with the writer Graeme Gibson.
