Read full description of the books Il racconto dell'ancella:

In un mondo devastato dalle radiazioni atomiche, gli Stati Uniti sono divenuti uno stato totalitario, basato sul controllo del corpo femminile. Le poche donne in grado di avere figli, le "ancelle", sono costrette alla procreazione coatta, mentre le altre sono ridotte in schiavitù. Della donna che non ha più nome e ora si chiama Difred, cioè "di Fred", il suo padrone, sappiamo che vive nella Repubblica di Galaad, e che può allontanarsi dalla casa del padrone solo una volta al mese, per andare al mercato. Difred tenta in tutti i modi di non lasciarsi stritolare dalla pazzia che la circonda rifiutando ogni coinvolgimento emotivo e cercando di dimenticare il suo passato e la società precedente. Apparentemente rassegnata al suo destino, prega di restare incinta, unica speranza di salvezza, ma non ha del tutto perso il ricordo delle emozioni di prima...
