The kindle team have picked two 4th Estate books for their February Picks – After the Lockout, the début novel from Darran McCann; and The Ice Balloon by Alec Wilkinson, the story of a failed attempt to travel across the North Pole by hot air balloon.
You can buy them for £6.99 each on Kindle and all e-reading devices.
After the Lockout is one of 4th Estate’s Fiction4theFuture titles and has receieved amazing advanced praise from Hilary Matel, who described it as ‘A wonderful novel about what history has done to Ireland, and what Ireland has done to history. The triumph is that it is not only deeply intelligent and self-aware, but also entertaining from the first page to the last.’
Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm, had this to say about The Ice Balloon: “Wilkinson’s writing is so flawless and engaging that I’d read him on a packed subway at rush hour.”
