March 2012

We’re holding our first giveaway here at Gin & Rhetoric! Click the link below for a chance to win a copy of the March book club pick, Susan Hill’s The Small Hand! The Giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering, and good luck next time.

I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for a good ghost story. I’m hoping to find just that in Susan Hill’s The Small Hand. Susan might be best known for penning The Woman In Black, which is a ghost story that has amassed a great deal of popularity since its release in 1983 — and is now a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe. I’ve got high hopes for The Small Hand, and I hope that you’ll join me in reading, and chatting about it. The chit-chat starts around February 20th at the Gin & Rhetoric Facebook page.

You can check it out on Goodreads here.

Praise for The Small Hand:

“The all-important atmosphere is beautifully evoked – the rundown Edwardian house, an isolated French monastery, the moments of haunting themselves. But what’s most impressive is what hangs between the spare lines of Hill’s precise prose – particularly in the book’s denouement. Ultimately, this is a wonderful piece of storytelling that does what a good story ought to do: it keeps you guessing, pulls you in.” — The Guardian, UK

“This beautifully written novel may be short, but not a word is wasted.” — The Spectator
