The London EDITION Hotel

The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is published on 10 September 2019. Until that date no fans will have read it, and we are offering one lucky reader and a friend the chance to be the first to dive into its pages.

Set 15 years after The Handmaid’s TaleThe Testaments is narrated by 3 female characters. It was recently longlisted for the Booker Prize 2019; the chair of the judges Peter Florence called it ‘terrifying and exhilarating’.

The winner and a friend will receive one night’s accommodation at the London EDITION Hotel on the night of 9-10 September 2019. A Set Menu Dinner for Two with one bottle of sommelier's choice red/ white wine and soft drinks will be included, as will breakfast. Two signed copies of the book will be delivered to the hotel at 00.01 on 10 September – along with a midnight snack.
