“I’m a finance clerk. I could be issuing invoices for anything, really: armaments, Rohypnol, coconuts.”

Fresh from triumphantly scoring the Costa First Novel Award, Gail Honeyman blends laugh-out-loud funny with sudden unexpected pathos for one of the strongest debuts we’ve seen in years. Eleanor Oliphant – a woman who lives and sees life very much by her own rules – simply leaps from the page as a character to be understood and admired.

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.
