Lives and journeys lend themselves to narrative. But how do we turn a personal excursion…
As part of our booker themed season on 4thestate.co.uk we are giving away 5 copies of Hilary Mantel’s 2009 Booker Prize-winner ‘Wolf Hall’
For a chance to win copies of our newly re-issued ‘Roseanna’, ‘The Man Who Went Up In Smoke’ and ‘The Man in the Balcony’ email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address.
The competition is open to UK and Ireland residents only. 5 winners will receive one copy of each book and will be chosen at random on Wednesday 27th July at 3pm, so get your emails in before then!
Richard Shephard interviews Maj Sjowall.
Q: The series has a strong international feel, especially in the first two books, with the influx of tourists in Roseanna and the complex business of passports, hotels and border crossings in The Man Who Went up in Smoke. Did you give them this to expand the canvas, as it were?
The shortlist is as follows:
GOLD BOY, EMERALD GIRL by Yiyun Li
Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers on the BBC has introduced many new people to Nigel’s style of simple, flavoursome recipes and books that are about good food rather than pretentious eating.
This style of recipe and cooking has been something we have been proud to publish in Nigel Slater’s books over the years.
We’re very excited to finally be able to show you our new online home, 4thestate.co.uk, where you‘ll find information on all of our authors and books.
Over the coming months we will be busy bringing you news and exclusives about our new and forthcoming books, giving away some freebies and doing everything we can to make this the place to come for news about 4th Estate authors.
Comic book adaptations are all the rage these days, but the adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim series is by far one of the fan-boy best!
Love the little Ting-Tings intro to this!
