By the author of The Handmaid's Tale and Alias Grace Stan and Charmaine are a married couple trying to stay afloat in the midst of economic and social collapse. Living in their car, surviving on tips from Charmaine's job at a dive bar, they're increasingly vulnerable to roving gangs and in a rather desperate state. So when they see an advertisement for the Positron Project in the town of Consilience - a 'social experiment' offering stable jobs and a home of their own - they sign up immediately. All they have to do in return for this suburban paradise is give up their freedom every second month, swapping their home for a prison cell. At first, all is well. But slowly, unknown to the other, Stan and Charmaine develop a passionate obsession with their counterparts, the couple that occupy their home when they are in prison. Soon the pressures of conformity, mistrust, guilt and sexual desire take over, and Positron looks less like a prayer answered and more like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.

This novel started as a response to an online competition Margaret Atwood posted on Wattpad before the publication of her book where she invited writers to elaborate on her secondary characters like Veronica and Con, Stan's brother who never liked his brother's girlfriend, Charmaine. The main plot elements of Stan and Charmaine losing their jobs after the economic crisis and living in their car which led them to join the Positron Project were given by Atwood. My novel took off with Veronica's life set about twenty years later after the events in Atwood's novel. This is why my book maintains the original plot on some level and transforms Veronica into a primary character. Hence the title of my first published book as tribute to Atwood's online competition before the publication of her book.

He drew in a deep breath. “I know it’s too much to ask, but I ask it anyway… Will you wait for me, Harriet?” 1819, Isle of Mull, Scotland: As Harriet Campbell looks out at the stormy Atlantic Ocean on the eve of Allan MacDougall’s departure to the New World, she expects a tearful goodbye. But instead her childhood sweetheart begs her to wait for him, promising one day he will come back for her. As months and eventually years pass—waiting for just one love letter to arrive —Harriet begins to regret the promise she made. Not realising his letters have gone astray, Allan is devastated to not hear back from Harriet; his heart quietly breaking as he battles for his independence and ultimately his life, in the wild and brutal new settlements. Then, Harriet’s fragile family fortunes take a turn for the worse, and when an immoral neighbour makes her an offer she isn’t sure she can refuse, she’s left with an impossible choice—stay faithful to the man she loves… or save her family and their farm from destitution? Can fate bring Harriet and Allan back together again? Or will time and the ocean that has separated them, keep them apart forever? An absolutely heart-wrenching, powerful, epic story about love, courage and betrayal for fans of Diana Gabaldon and Poldark. Previously published as Far Horizons.

In 1966, French philosopher Michel Foucault outlined the notions of "heterotopias" in a talk given to a group of architects, titled "Of Other Spaces: Of Utopias and Heterotopias," Exploring the principles that constitute these very "other" places and their relationship to the spaces that define them. Foucault's theory was largely abandoned and left unfinished, though completed enough to puzzle scholars with its contradictions and incompatibilities. This project explores practical applications of Foucault's theory on heterotopias, allowing for a flexible interpretation with the deployment of queer theory. Though Foucault's theory on heterotopias largely explores space, this project attempts a new interpretation of the theory that examines queered identities and their relationship to space, arguing that it is queered identities that queer a space and characterize it as heterotopic. Exploring Ari Aster's 2019 film Midsommar and Margaret Atwood's The Heart Goes Last, the project uses the two texts as case studies for the application and expansion of Foucault's theory on heterotopias.

The stunning graphic novel adaptation • A must-read and collector’s item for fans of “the patron saint of feminist dystopian fiction” (New York Times). Look for The Testaments, the sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, coming September 2019. In Margaret Atwood’s dystopian future, environmental disasters and declining birthrates have led to a Second American Civil War. The result is the rise of the Republic of Gilead, a totalitarian regime that enforces rigid social roles and enslaves the few remaining fertile women. Offred is one of these, a Handmaid bound to produce children for one of Gilead’s commanders. Deprived of her husband, her child, her freedom, and even her own name, Offred clings to her memories and her will to survive. Provocative, startling, prophetic, The Handmaid’s Tale has long been a global phenomenon. With this beautiful graphic novel adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s modern classic, beautifully realized by artist Renée Nault, the terrifying reality of Gilead has been brought to vivid life like never before.

WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE LONGLISTED FOR THE SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Margaret Atwood's dystopian masterpiece, The Handmaid's Tale, has become a modern classic—and now she brings the iconic story to a dramatic conclusion in this riveting sequel. 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 voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets. As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she 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. "The literary event of the year." —The Guardian "The international literary event of the season." —Globe and Mail "It’s terrifying and exhilarating." —Judges of the Booker Prize 2019

The Door, Margaret Atwood's first book of poetry since Morning in the Burned House, is a magnificent achievement. Here in paperback for the first time, these fifty lucid, urgent poems range in tone from lyric to ironic to mediative to prophetic, and in subject from the personal to the political, viewed in its broadest sense. They investigate the mysterious writing of poetry itself, as well as the passage of time and our shared sense of mortality. Brave and compassionate, The Door interrogates the certainties that we build our lives on, and reminds us once again of Margaret Atwood's unique accomplishments as one of the finest and most celebrated writers of our time.

A new book of poetry from internationally acclaimed, award-winning and bestselling author Margaret Atwood In Dearly, Margaret Atwood’s first collection of poetry in over a decade, Atwood addresses themes such as love, loss, the passage of time, the nature of nature and - zombies. Her new poetry is introspective and personal in tone, but wide-ranging in topic. In poem after poem, she casts her unique imagination and unyielding, observant eye over the landscape of a life carefully and intuitively lived. While many are familiar with Margaret Atwood’s fiction—including her groundbreaking and bestselling novels The Handmaid’s Tale, The Testaments, Oryx and Crake, among others—she has, from the beginning of her career, been one of our most significant contemporary poets. And she is one of the very few writers equally accomplished in fiction and poetry. This collection is a stunning achievement that will be appreciated by fans of her novels and poetry readers alike.
