This week we’re giving away the new book from award-winning Australian author Sofie Laguna. Her previous novel, The Eye of the Sheep, won the prestigious Miles Franklin Literary Award in 2015 – and her latest is The Choke.
The Choke is a haunting novel about a child navigating a dark world of male power, guns and violence. Once more, Sofie showcases her impressive empathy – as seen through a young girl’s eyes and against the backdrop of a shrinking Murray River. It has been described as a heartbreaking read of uncompromising compassion and intimacy – one of the most fully realised child’s perspectives ever written in contemporary Australian fiction.
We have two copies of The Choke to give away. To be in to win one, we’ll avoid all the dark themes and simply ask you to tell us your favourite word that rhymes with “choke” – and why. The two answers we like best will each receive a copy of the book.
THIS COMPETITION HAS CLOSED. THANKS FOR YOUR ENTRIES! WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN OUR NEWSLETTER.
