Margaret Atwood: The Testaments

Margaret Atwood, 1977

The Testaments is Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, out now from Vintage Books. Set 15 years after the end of The Handmaid’s Tale, the novel traces the continued evolution of Atwood’s totalitarian state of Gilead, where women are reduced to their wombs and justification is found in the Bible for every abuse of power.

Karsh photographed Atwood in 1977 to be included in Karsh: Canadians, University of Toronto Press, 1978.
