Win a signed set of the 2012 Man Booker Prize shortlist

Win a signed set of the 2012 Man Booker Prize shortlist

Now the dust has settled on another thrilling Man Booker Prize year we want to make sure as many people as possible have read the novels we got excited about.

Every day this week we’ll be giving away a signed set of the 2012 Man Booker Prize shortlisted titles – that’s five chances to win six fantastic books! 

For your chance to own this literary delight we are taking inspiration from Foyle’s inspired Twitter #bookgame. We want you to rewrite a Man Booker title from any year by combining the original name of the book with a subject of our choosing.

So if the topic was #ManBookerFruit entries could include:

  • Bring up the Bananas (Bring up the Bodies – Hilary Mantel)
  • The Northern Clementine (The Northern Clemency – Philip Hensher)
  • Great Granny Smith Webster (Great Granny Webster – Caroline Blackwood)

The competition closes at 5pm each day; we will choose our favourite entry and post the winner on this page and on Facebook and Twitter

To enter:

  • email your entry to [email protected] with Shortlist Comp in the subject line
  • Tweet @manbookerprize (your entry here) #manbooker(subject)
  • or post your entry on our Facebook page

Good luck!
