Elisabeth Moss narrates The Handmaid’s Tale

Elisabeth Moss has narrated the audio edition of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

The actress, who plays Offred in the TV adaptation, recorded the audiobook while filming season three.

It digital version of the audiobook was released on 30th April, with the CD following on 7th May.

Atwood said: “I am delighted that Elisabeth Moss has agreed to narrate this new audio edition of The Handmaid’s Tale. Her reading is powerful, haunting, compelling, and authentic. She is a natural actor who values the truth of a role above her own star quality. I have been so lucky to have had her interpreting Offred.”

Contributing to the “Historical Notes” section of the audiobook are a number of other actors who appear in the TV series.

Ann Dowd, who plays Aunt Lydia, narrates the opening of the notes, with Amy Landecker and Bradley Whitford narrating the transcript that confirms the demise of Gilead but leaves the end of Offred’s story ambiguous.
