The Handmaid’s Tale Atwood, Margaret March 16, 1998

Without writing a spoiler (alert!) it’s an excellent dystopic view of a post-Evangelical/NeoCon take-over of America - but more generally, an expose of the hypocrisy and moral decrepitude of any theocracy (except perhaps Bhutan - but that’s Buddhism for you: a “theocracy” with no “God”)
