I have three brand-new, unread books to give away:
Too Close to the Sun by Sara Wheeler, about the life and times of Denys Finch Hatton (famous for being featured in Karen Blixen’s Out of Africa). "Magnificent" (Sunday Times) and "engrossing" (The Times). Vintage paperback.
His Lovely Wife by Elizabeth Dewberry. According to the blurb: "a complex and surprising novel that explores a culture that celebrates women for their beauty – then extracts a terrible toll". It seems to be about a Princess Diana lookalike whose husband is a nuclear physicist. There is the obligatory headless woman, on this occasion wearing a green dress, on the cover. Harcourt, paperback.
Body Surfing by Anita Shreve. Her latest novel. Hardback, US edition. (Yellowy gold, the UK edition that I’ve seen in the shops is blue.) Little, Brown. (Of the three, this is one I am going to read, but I’ve already got a proof copy.)
Please drop me a line in the comments if you’d like one of these. I will email you to find out your postal address.
