Grazia Book Club: WIN one of 15 Copies of Purge by Sofi Oksanen

19 August 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 Purge by Sofi Oksanen. Here's a quick synopsis to whet your appetite:

Deep in an Estonian forest, two women, one young, one old, are hiding. Zara is a prostitute and a murderer, on the run from brutal captors - men who know how to punish a woman. Aliide offers refuge but not safety: she has her own criminal secrets - traitorous crimes of passion and revenge committed long ago, during the country's brutal Soviet years. Both women have survived lives of abuse. But this time their survival depends on revealing the one thing history has taught them to keep safely hidden: the truth. A haunting, intimate and gripping story of suspicion, betrayal and retribution against a backdrop of Soviet oppression and European war. Intrigued? You should be.

To win one of fifteen copies of Purge, just answer the simple question below. And, to download a sample chapter of the book, head to, where you can also purchase a copy if you're not one of the lucky fifteen to win.
