The Year of the Flood

A natural disaster has altered the Earth as we know it, obliterating most human life. The story that unfolds is a testament to Margaret Atwood’s visionary power.

“A heart-pounding thriller.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Leave it to Atwood to find humor in a post-apocalyptic world as she covertly, and brilliantly, addresses questions of how we need to live on an imperiled planet.” —Kansas City Star

“Atwood is funny and clever, such a good writer and real thinker. . . . The Year of the Flood isn’t prophecy, but it is eerily possible.” —The New York Times Book Review
