Throughout August we’re running a special subscriber offer: Buy a new 4 or 6 book subscription for yourself or someone else, and we’ll send you a free book! What’s more, our free ebook offer still applies.
Each week, we’ll be giving away a different book, as we bring some of our favourite backlist titles into the spotlight with a mini-celebration over on our blog Ampersand.
1-7 August: Quesadillas by Juan Pablo Villalobos
‘Guaranteed to entertain, from its attention-grabbing opening line to its gloriously bizarre climax.’ Ángel Gurría-Quintana, Financial Times
8-14 August: 101 Detectives by Ivan Vladislavić
‘One of the boldest, wittiest, and most imaginative fiction writers working today . . . Vladislavic’s amazing fiction makes detectives of readers and writers alike.’ Laurie Greer, bookseller, Politics & Prose
15-21 August: Sworn Virgin by Elvira Dones
‘I couldn’t put it down. Dones’s ability to tell a politically and psychically complex story with such lightness of touch is down to her flowing, spring-clear prose and slyly subversive vision.’ Kapka Kassabova, The Guardian
22-31 August: Now and at the Hour of Our Death by Susana Moreira Marques
‘This year I was internally rearranged by Now and at the Hour of Our Death, a piece of lyric reportage by a Portuguese journalist, Susana Moreira Marques. It’s an account of hospice care in a rural region of Portugal, but it’s also a long poem built of morphine and gauze and ragged breathing and roadside crosses. Its glimpses splintered into me and have not left.’ Leslie Jamison, New York Times
