 Giveaway: Tampa by Alissa Nutting



If I were to peg a book as 2013s most controversial release, Alissa Nuttings'Tampa,'would probably be it. Ill be reviewing the book shortly, but in the meantime the generous people at Allen & Unwin have offered copies of the book to give away to five of my Australian readers.

To enter, simply fill in the Rafflecopter form below. That said, Id love to hear your thoughts on the bookpitched as a contemporary'Lolita from a female perspectiveand on its highly suggestive Australian cover.

About the book:

Celeste Price is an eighth-grade English teacher in suburban Tampa. She is attractive. She drives a red Corvette. Her husband, Ford, is rich, square-jawed and devoted to her. But Celeste has a secret. She has a singular sexual obsession fourteen-year-old boys. It is a craving she pursues with sociopathic meticulousness and forethought. Within weeks of her first term at a new school, Celeste has lured the charmingly modest Jack Patrick into her web car rides after dark, rendezvous at Jacks house while his single father works the late shift, and body-slamming encounters in Celestes empty classroom between periods. It is bliss.

Celeste must constantly confront the forces threatening their affair the perpetual risk of exposure, Jacks fathers own attraction to her, and the ticking clock as Jack leaves innocent boyhood behind. But the insatiable Celeste is remorseless. She deceives everyone, is close to no one and cares little for anything but her pleasure.

With crackling, stampeding, rampantly sexualised prose,'Tampa'is a grand, satirical, serio-comic examination of desire and a scorching literary debut.
