WIN One of Fifteen Copies of The Summer Without Men!

22 July 2011

Forget fretting over this summer's beach reads, because we've joined forces with our pals at Waterstones to bring you lucky lot the chance to win the Book of the Week from Grazia's 10 Hot Reads every Friday! And the latest book up for grabs is The Summer Without Men by 

The book tells the story of Mia Fredricksen. After her husband of thirty years asks for a pause - so he can indulge his infatuation with a young French colleague - she cracks up (briefly), rages (deeply), then decamps to her prairie childhood home. There, gradually, she is drawn into the lives of those around her: her mother's circle of feisty widows; the young woman next door; and the diabolical teenage girls in her poetry class. By the end of the summer without men, Mia knows what's worth fighting for - and on whose terms. Provocative, mordant, and fiercely intelligent, this is a gloriously vivacious tragi-comedy about women and girls, love and marriage, and the age-old war between the sexes.

SO we have fifteen copies of the book to give away - just answer the question below to be in with a chance of winning. And if you don't win this time, don't fear because you can buy it now here.
