I received a review copy of A Beautiful Truth by Colin McAdam courtesy of Soho Press in anticipation of their hardback US release of this title in September 2013. Aussie readers (and ebook converts) can get your hands on a copy earlier from other publishers with regional rights if you’re interested. This sounds very moving – cannot wait.
I must admit, it was the cover art that first attracted me to Three Lives of Tomomi Ishikawa by Benjamin Constable in the NetGalley catalogue. And once I’d read the words ‘Englishman in Paris’, ‘cryptic suicide note’, ‘posthumous messages’ and ‘scavenger hunt leading to charming and unexpected spaces, from the hidden alleys of Paris to the cobblestone streets of New York City’, I just could not walk away… This will be released 4 June 2013.
The Travel Auction by Mark Green (from the author) was released in February 2013. It has a really fun premise – a guy dumped by his girlfriend seeking a travel companion via eBay for a long-planned trip to South America. It was recently reviewed by Leeswammes.
