I picked this up at Half Price Books. It wasn't supposed to be a manual.

From the back cover:
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now...

Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.

I started to read this book, and it's very good! It needs to be out in the world, though. Last week, Texas basically outlawed abortion, and other states (yay, Nebraska) are planning to follow their lead. Too timely to keep this one on the shelf.
