After a few years blogging, and also to aptly mark the recent publication of The Life of A Counterfeiter, the third book by Inoue Yasushi from Pushkin Press, recently read here, it gives me great pleasure to be able to offer readers with my first give away post, a chance to receive and review a copy of Bullfight, the Akutagawa Prize winning story by Inoue Yasushi, translated by Michael Emmerich, via the generosity of Pushkin Press. All you need to do is to leave a comment to register your interest then send me an email, (via my profile), with your postal address and after 10 days, (or there about, apologies - this is the speed I work at!), I'll pop all names into a hat or bag and then pick the name of the lucky recipient, I'm happy to post anywhere on the globe, but obviously there is also the obligatory provision - that once you've read the book you post a review of it on either your own, or your favourite website or blog so that I have somewhere to link on to after the event. So there you go, that's all there is to it, if you'd like the opportunity to win and read this copy of a post war masterpiece leave a comment stating your interest and then drop us an email with a contact address - good luck and all the best.

Pls count me in! I've only read one book by Inoue (his memoirs about his mother) and it's ... memorable. Will send an email shortly.

Duly counted, I've been contemplating possibly to turn to Chronicle of My Mother as my next read by him, thanks for entering!.

I've seen some reviews and I'd love to read this, but my local libraries don't have it. Please put my name in.

Thank you for reading and the comment, your name is going into the bag!. Your profile picture is really great, is that a self portrait?.

Yea, it is, it was made by my friend, Tyler D. Graffam. Here's a link to his work, if you're interested: http://tylerdgraffam.com
