Product Description

Margaret Atwood is the author of more than forty works, including fiction, poetry and critical essays, and her books have been published in over thirty-five countries. She has won many literary awards and prizes.

By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and The Testaments

Charmaine sees an advertisement for a project called Positron that promises you a job, a place to live, a bed to sleep in - imagine how appealing that would be if you were working in a dive bar and living in your car. She and her husband, Stan, apply at once.

The only catch is that once you're in there, you can't get out.

No one writes the lust and the loves, the wickedness and the weakness of the human heart like the splendid Margaret Atwood.

'Margaret Atwood [is] a living legend' New York Times Book Review

'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

'Her eye for the most unpredictable caprices of the human heart and her narrative fearlessness have made her one of the world's most celebrated novelists' Naomi Alderman, Guardian

'The bestselling author who shot to fame thirty years ago with The Handmaid's Tale is still at her darkly comic best' Sunday Times

"'Remember what your life used to be like?' says the man's voice . . . 'At the Positron Project in the town of Consilience, it can be like that again . . . Sign up now!'"


For Stan and Charmaine, a married couple struggling with problems after the world's brutal economic collapse - living in their car, lousy jobs, vandalism, debt - it's the answer. There's just one drawback: once inside you don't get out.


'Awfully good' Mail on Sunday

A sinister, wickedly funny novel about a near-future in which the lawful are locked up and the lawless roam free, The Heart Goes Last is Margaret Atwood at her heart-stopping best.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 plausibleHer eye for the most unpredictable caprices of the human heart and her narrative fearlessness have made her one of the world's most celebrated novelistsThe bestselling author who shot to fame 30 years ago with The Handmaid's Tale is still at her darkly comic bestAtwood'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 convincingWhat 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 . . .

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 cryThis visceral study of desperation and desire journeys into the dark heart of greed, exploitation and brutality, as it portrays a project that is "an infringement of individual liberties, an attempt at total social control, an insult to the human spirit". It is filled with passages of great intellectual and emotional acuity, appealing both to the head and to the heartAn arresting perspective on the confluence of information, freedom, and security in the modern ageCaptivating. . . .
