Welcome to the 4th Estate Monthly Book Quiz!
So we’ve made it through Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year, but it did make us feel rather nostalgic for a momentous 2013. And who can blame us? Last year gave 4th Estate plenty of reasons to be cheerful – from Tash Aw’s Five Star Billionaire being longlisted for the Man Booker Prize to Lucy Hughes-Hallet’s spectacular win of the Samuel Johnson Prize for The Pike – her biography of proto-fascist and poet Gabriele D’Annunzio.
The inexorable slide into winter has begun, and the evenings are closing in around us. The last thing we want to do once we get in, after battling through commuters or decidedly soggy from an impromptu downpour, is get in and embark upon lengthy preparations at the stove. Luckily, on hand is Nigel Slater with Eat: The Little Book of Fast Food.
To celebrate the launch of Nigel Slater’s Eat, we’re giving one very lucky reader the chance to win a signed copy of this beautiful book.
