HEART GOES LAST

Summary

Margaret Atwood puts the human heart to the ultimate test in a new novel that brilliantly satirizes the corporate prison complex of the twenty-first century.

Stan and Charmaine are a married couple trying to stay afloat in the midst of a nationwide economic and social collapse. Job loss has forced them to live in their car, leaving them vulnerable to roving gangs. They desperately need to turn their situation around—and fast. The Positron Project seems to be the answer to their prayers. Everyone gets a job and a clean, comfortable house to live in…for six months out of the year. On alternating months, residents must leave their homes and function as inmates in the Positron prison system. Once their month of service in the prison is completed, they can return to their “civilian” homes.

At first, this doesn’t seem like too much of a sacrifice to make in order to have a roof over their heads and food on the table. But when Charmaine becomes romantically involved with the man who lives in their house during the months when she and Stan are in the prison, a series of troubling events unfolds, putting Stan’s life in danger. With each passing day, Positron looks less like a prayer answered and more like a chilling prophecy fulfilled.
