Samantha, Author: The Handmaid’s Tale (Margaret Atwood)
“Choosing your favourite book is always tough, but mine is undoubtedly THE HANDMAID’S TALE by Margaret Atwood – the book that’s on everyone’s lips at the moment. I’ve been a fan of it since my English Literature teachers gave me a copy just before I left for university when I was eighteen. It’s a book that taps into my very deepest fears, but it’s also the book that made me a feminist, inspired me to write about issues I hold dear to my heart, and set me on the path to writing my own dystopian fiction.”
