Margaret Atwood’s new novel, The Heart Goes Last, imagines a world turned upside-down by a massive economic collapse.

The Positron Project in the town of Consilience seems to be the answer to all their problems. Residents are required to live and work in the Positron prison for half of the time; on alternating months, they live in houses within the confines of Consilience. But this innovative solution to the economic crisis has a dark side...
