BOOKS & PRIZE DRAW
In an article written for The Guardian on the death of her friend, Elizabeth Jane Howard, Hilary Mantel, wrote ‘In teaching writing myself, there is no author I have recommended more often’. If you haven’t ever read the quartet of novels knows as the Cazalet Chronicles which draw on Jane’s own family story (she was always known as Jane, never Elizabeth) and trace the fortunes of an upper-middle-class family from 1937 through to the 1950s, you’re in for a treat. Sometimes compared to E.M.Forster, Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford, you’ll fall in love with Louise, Polly, Clary and the whole family. And there’s never been a better time to do so as the series are being republished on the 7th June with beautiful illustrations by Luke Edward Hall.
We’re thrilled to say that we have one set to give away to a lucky reader. Just enter into our prize draw below and we will pick one lucky reader out of a hat after 5pm on Friday 25th June 2021. Please note that the books will be sent directly to the winner by the publisher. Good luck!
