The handmaid's tale by Margaret Atwood( Visual )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized "return to traditional values." As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander's household, belonging to the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids - where anyone could be a spy for Gilead - with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her."--Container

"Dans une société totalitariste, autrefois appelée les États-Unis, la République de Gilead impose un fondamentalisme prônant "un retour aux valeurs traditionnelles", pour faire notamment face aux catastrophes naturelles climatiques et à un taux de natalité en chute libre. Defred, l'une des dernières femmes encore fertiles et servante de la maison d'un Commandant, appartient à la caste des femmes forcées à la servitude sexuelle. Dans cette société terrifiante, où chacun est suspecté d'être un espion de Gilead, Defred doit jongler entre ses consoeurs, les Commandants et leurs épouses cruelles, en poursuivant son unique but : survivre et retrouver sa fille qui lui a été enlevée..."
