Giveaway: The Glamour by Christopher Priest

 Giveaway: The Glamour by Christopher Priest

As readers of this site will probably recall,'I was recently blown away by Christopher Priests'The Glamour, a book of imagined realities, retrospective memory and refashioned identities. Its a book that I imagine is going to haunt me for some to come. If youre interested, you can read my review here.

To celebrate the mind-boggling nature of this book, I thought Id pass on my copy to one of my Aussie readers (sorry international readers, but Book Depository doesnt have a copy in stock, and international shipping from Australia is crippling).

Heres the blurb:

Welcome to the world of the glamour.

The glamour is the unsuspected underworld to our normal lives, seductive and sinister, peopled by those who can never be seen. It exists on the edge of reality, full of doubt, behind a veil of invisibility.

But is the invisibility real, or is it merely a state of not being noticed?

This is the story of two young people who fall in love while trying to escape from the glamour. Richard Grey is a television news cameraman, his career shattered by a terrorist outrage, who has to piece his life together from old but unreliable memories. Susan Kewley, a graphic artist, is torn between Grey and another man, one deeply embedded in his introspective world of invisibility.
