TRENDING: Dystopian Fiction

Save the light reading for later. In 2017, dystopian fiction is all the rage.

Gloomy classics depicting societies gone terribly wrong have shot to the top of best-seller lists like Amazon‘s in recent months, including George Orwell’s 1984 and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, prompting publishers to ramp up production decades after the books were first released. Others have followed close behind, such as Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Sinclair Lewis’ It Can’t Happen Here and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.

Some nonfiction works in the same vein have seen similar resurgences, including Hannah Arendt’s 1951 Origins of Totalitarianism.

Longtime staples in English literature courses, dystopian works are attracting new attention from casual readers and social book clubs. Local theater groups are adapting versions for the stage. College courses on dystopian classics are suddenly drawing long wait lists.
