GIVEAWAY- The Hairdresser of Harare (UK only)

I really enjoyed reading this book and so, as part of the 'Summer Special' I'd like to give away my once-only-read copy to one of my readers. As usual it will be registered with bookcrossing- there is no obligation to follow this up, although I would be very happy if you did decide to make a journal entry upon its arrival.

Here's my review of the book, incase you missed it:
A book that presents tough issues in a light-hearted, yet appropriate, fashion. The Hairdresser of Harare has a charm about it which I really liked. There were enough similarities with my own culture to make me feel connected with the text, and  the differences seemed naturally to flow out of the pages. I really felt as if I understood the main character. The only problem I had was understand the few non-English words that were used- an index to them in the back might have been useful. This was my first read of a book set in Zimbabwe and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
