The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood
The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

Eilis O'Hanlon

This strange offering comes from Canadian author Margaret Atwood, who's incapable of being dull, and is another in her trademark speculative visions of the future, after The Handmaid's Tale.

The world has become a "festering scrap heap... people are starving. Scavenging, pilfering, dumpster-diving."

Charmaine and Stan are living in their car, struggling to survive financially and literally as feral gangs roam the city.
