Margaret Atwood’s first stand-alone novel in fifteen years, The Heart Goes Last, hits shelves in September. The book’s publisher, Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, revealed the cover this week. What do you think?
According to Publisher’s Weekly, The Heart Goes Last, “…tells the story of Charmaine and Stan, a couple living in their car and surviving almost entirely on tips. Their lives take a drastic turn, however, when they sign up for a “social experiment” that provides them with jobs and a home. The caveat, though, is that the couple must do a stint in a prison cell every second month, while an “alternate” pair occupies their house.”
