from Waterstones UK

Competition PictureBright Shiny Morning is the stunning debut novel by James Frey – author of the controversial but universally adored memoir, A Million Little Pieces, and its follow up, My Friend Leonard.

It generally takes something pretty special to provoke so enthusiastic a response from our Fiction Editor: “Bright Shiny Morning is sure to resonate for many years to come as the first great LA novel… a modern masterpiece of American fiction.” Greg Eden, Waterstone’s Head Office.

Bright Shiny Morning has already been met by similar controversy to its predecessors, and to celebrate its arrival we’re offering a fantastic opportunity to win a signed copy of the first original, unedited manuscript, which is huge and has loads of extra sections that didn’t make the final edit. A runner-up will also win a signed first edition.

No purchase necessary. To be in with a chance of winning this truly unique prize, answer the question below and then enter your details.
