    is probably The Assassin's Tale . . . just from a general literary perspective.  But The Handmaid's Tale is an incredibly important book.  I am not an opera fan, but nevertheless I went to the North American premiere of the opera based on the novel . . . . it was amazing.

    I taught a class on Atwood a couple of springs ago, and was oddly gratified to learn that all of the women and a good many of the men in the class found HT scared the shit out of them.  Don't know if that makes sense to y'all . . . .
