‘Here’s the thing,’ declared The Shock of the Fall’s Nathan Filer. ‘It’s perfect.’

Britain is suddenly consumed by a vast flood; at the outset of the chaos, a woman gives birth to her child. Rendered in brilliant, staccato prose, mother and infant son are forced forever north as the country collapses around them. Motherhood’s agonising, intimate bond attains a primal edge in Megan Hunter’s incredibly accomplished debut.

A chair, a table, a lamp. Above, on the  white ceiling, a relief ornament in the shape of a wreath, and in the centre of it a blank space, plastered over, like the place in a face where the eye has been taken out. There must have been a chandelier, once. They’ve removed anything you could tie a rope to.

Offred lives in The Republic of Gilead, to some a utopian vision of the future, a place of safety, a place where everyone has a purpose, a function. But The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed.

If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.
