June / July 2014 Competitions


Richard Flanagan’s sixth novel, The Narrow Road to the Deep North has already been described by Evie Wyld as, ‘Not just a great book but an important book in its ability to look at terrible things and create something beautiful. Everyone should read it.’ We agree with Evie. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning a copy, tell us the title of Flanagan’s debut novel…

Hiromi Kawakami’s Strange Weather in Tokyo has been on our radar for a few months now. The novel, which is a sort of May to December romance, has all the fragility and gentle comedy of a late Kurosawa movie (we’re thinking something like Madadayo) and comes highly recommended from Bookmunch towers. You want one, tell us where the author was born…

Nikesh Shukla’s latest has already been compared to The Catcher in the Rye by the mighty Gary Shteyngart, which is high praise indeed. You can bag a copy of Meatspace for yourself if you tell us just who or what meatspace actually is…

CJ Box is one of Bookmunch’s favourite crime writers and a book of short stories drawn from throughout his career is right up our street. If you’re a Box fan and fancy getting your hands on a copy of Shots Fired, tell us the name of Joe Pickett’s buddy who looks after all manner of hunting birds when he isn’t up to his eyes in shady business…

Last but by no means least we have Cristina Henriquez’ The Book of Unknown Americans, which takes place in a run-down apartment building in Delaware, home to nine families who arrived in the States from various South and Central American countries, each looking to better the lives of the next generation. You want one? Tell us who wrote The Tortilla Curtain

Gruff Rhys, Mr Super Furry Animal himself has written a book,  American Interior – and there’ll be a review coming up on the ‘Munch shortly. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one, please complete the old SFA song title: The Man Don’t Give A … what?

Our favourite graphic novel of the moment is undoubtedly Sally Heathcote Suffragette by the old battling Talbots. If you want to win a copy let us know which Steve McQueen film we namecheck in the review…

Closing date for all comps is Thursday 31 July. Please send your answers (with the book’s name in the subject box) to bookmunch.comps@gmail.com. Also include your name and address so we can send you a book if you win!
