Etc Magazine Launches New Book Club

So many books, so little time …

Followers of the Richard & Judy Book Club and The TV Book Club will be pleased to hear there’s another reading group on the scene – the Etc Book Club, run by Etc Magazine‘s editor Alex Jenkins and feature writer Laura Cartledge, to bring you gripping new reads, author interviews and readers’ views.

The book club launches in the March edition with Hurry Up and Wait, followed by an author interview, reader comments and book giveaway in the April issue.

Here’s the blurb …

It’s more than twenty years since Sarah Ribbons last set foot inside her old high school, a crumbling Victorian-built comprehensive on the south coast of England. Now, as she prepares for her school reunion, 39-year-old Sarah has to face up to the truth of what really happened back in the summer of 1986.

In her eagerly anticipated second novel Mail on Sunday Novel Competition winner Isabel Ashdown explores the treacherous territory of adolescent friendships, and traces across the decades the repercussions of a dangerous relationship.

Daily Mail: “With strong characters, a cleverly constructed story and masses of period detail, this vivid evocation of life in 1985 is a fine second book from a writer who first won The Mail On Sunday novel competition.”

Alex and Laura are keen to hear readers’ comments and suggestions:

“If you know of a book that would be good to review, whether it is by a local author or a national bestseller, then let us know by emailing alex.jenkins@jpress.co.uk.”

You can buy Hurry Up and Wait in Waterstones, Amazon, the Guardian Bookshop and most other online book stores.
