Thanks to Allen & Unwin I have a paperback copy of LOVE IN THE YEARS OF LUNACY by Mandy Sayer to giveaway to one lucky reader.

Love in the Years of Lunacy by Mandy Sayer


Synopsis: Sydney, 1942. Pearl is 18, beautiful and impetuous. She plays saxophone in an all-girl jazz band at the Trocadero and occasionally sits in on underground gigs with her twin brother Martin, who also plays the sax. On one such evening black GI and jazz legend James Washington blows into her life, and nothing is ever the same again, especially not Pearl. A love story begins to unfold against the blacked-out nights and rumour-filled days of a city in the grip of war. But public events are closing in on Pearl’s private world. When James is shipped out to fight in New Guinea, she hatches a breathtaking plan to reunite with him. And then all hell breaks loose. Moving, tender and audaciously original, Love in the Years of Lunacy is a love story with a haunting jazz soundtrack and a war story like no other.


Mandy Sayer won the Vogel Award at 26, with her first novel, Mood Indigo. Since then she has been named one of Australia’s Best Young Novelists by the Sydney Morning Herald and has published the novels Blind LuckThe Cross, and The Night has a Thousand Eyes, which won the 2008 Davitt Award for Young Adult Fiction, and the short story collection Fifteen Kinds of Desire.
