Book Review: The Handmaid's Tale
http://www.nytimes.com/books/00/03/26/specials/mccarthy-atwood.html
"Surely the essential element of a cautionary tale is recognition. . . . It is an effect, for me, almost strikingly missing from Margaret Atwood's very readable book . . . It seems harsh to say again of a poet's novel -- so hard to put down, in part so striking -- that it lacks imagination, but that, I fear, is the problem."
