The Testaments T.02 The Handmaid's Tale
24,45

WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE

The Testaments is a modern masterpiece, a powerful novel that can be read on its own or as a companion to Margaret Atwood’s classic, The Handmaid’s Tale.

More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.

Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third: Aunt Lydia. Her complex past and uncertain future unfold in surprising and pivotal ways.

With The Testaments, Margaret Atwood opens up the innermost workings of Gilead, as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.


Beloved

Random House UK

16,00

Inspiré d'un fait divers survenu en 1856, Beloved exhume l'horreur et la folie d'un passé douloureux. Sethe est une ancienne esclave qui, au nom de l'amour et de la liberté, a tué l'enfant qu'elle chérissait pour ne pas la voir vivre l'expérience avilissante de la servitude. Quelques années plus tard, le fantôme de Beloved, la petite fille disparue, revient douloureusement hanter sa mère coupable. Loin de tous les clichés, Toni Morrison ranime la mémoire, exorcise le passé et transcende la douleur des opprimés.

« Son oeuvre, venue restituer à l'Amérique la mémoire, l'imaginaire et la langue de sa communauté, sonde la société contemporaine en transgressant tous les tabous. »
Le Point

« Un roman bouleversant, violent et douloureux, qui a valu à son auteur le prix Pulitzer en 1988. »
Éliane Vipois, Lire

All of them are connected by bonds they may not yet understand. All of them are here for the celebration that is the Big Oakland Powwow. But Tony Loneman is also there. And Tony has come to the Powow with darker intentions.
