This is a giveaway, in which we do what it says on the tin. We give something away.

We've got couple of copies of The Memory Artist, the Vogel-winning novel by Katherine Brabon to give away – courtesy of our friends at Allen & Unwin.

The Memory Artist is the tale of Pasha Ivanov whose childhood apartment in Moscow was used for secret dissident meetings during the years of Brezhnev's tyrannical rule over the Soviet Union. It is a tour of time, recollections and observation, as Pasha's search to find meaning leads him to assemble a fractured story of Russia’s traumatic past.

For your chance to win a copy, email and tell us about the last great book you read that took you back to your past.
