Win, read and review Light Perpetual by Francis Spufford!

Faber is delighted to offer reading groups the opportunity to read the Booker Prize longlisted novel from Francis Spufford, Light Perpetual.

About the book

The second novel from Francis Spufford following on from his Costa-winning bestseller, Golden Hill, Light Perpetual is a story of the everyday, the miraculous and the everlasting, following the lives of five individuals through the second half of the 20th century and all the changes that those years heralded. Picked as a book of the year for 2021 by The Times, the Guardian and the Evening Standard, and described by Richard Osman as ‘One of the best opening chapters and closing chapters you’ll ever read’, this is a perfect book for reading groups.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
