This week in Reading Ireland Month, it is Contemporary Novel week and I will be reviewing four recent books from Ireland and Northern Ireland throughout the coming days.
However, to kick off the week in style, I am hosting a giveaway and the chance for one lucky person to win a hardback copy of the new Roddy Doyle novel – Charlie Savage.
Not only that, it is signed by the man himself!
Meet Charlie Savage: a middle-aged Dubliner with an indefatigable wife, an exasperated daughter, a drinking buddy who’s realised that he’s been a woman all along….
Charlie Savage compiles a year’s worth of Roddy Doyle’s hilarious series for the Irish Independent. Giving a unique voice to the everyday, he draws a portrait of a ma – funny, loyal and somewhat bewildered – trying to keep pace with the modern world (if his knees don’t give out first).
To enter the giveaway, just comment below and tell me your favourite recent novel – that’s all!
I will post internationally and will announce the winner, drawn by Rafflecopter, on Sunday.
Charlie Savage is not published until March 7th so the book will be posted to the winner after that date.
I am a 40 something book buying addict trying to reduce the backlog one book at a time!
