As of Monday, February 6, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (published 1985) is Amazon.com’s bestselling book.

Most likely following a spot for the television adaptation of the Booker Prize-winning novel during the American Super Bowl, the Canadian author Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale has now taken over the number 1 bestselling book position on Amazon, over Milo Yiannopoulos’ Dangerous and George Orwell’s 1985.

The adaptation of Atwood’s novel, which stars Elisabeth Moss (also a producer) and Joseph Fiennes in a patriarchal totalitarian theocracy, is set to air on Hulu, April 26, 2017.
