Competition! Win a copy of Arcadia by Iain Pears

Iain Pears' new novel Arcad​ia is available now, and we've got 10 hardbook copies of the book to give away.

All you have to do to stand a chance of winning a copy is to click this magic link, and answer the multiple choice question that lies on the other side.

The novel focuses on Henry Lytten, an Oxford-based spy-turned-academic and writer in 1962. He creates Jay, an 11-year-old boy who's grown up in an idyllic fantasy world, but has a life-changing supernatural vision that causes Jay to question the rules of his world. In another of his creations, a society dominated by technology toys with the science of time travel. And in the real world, one of Lytten's old intelligence colleagues draws him back for one last assignment. As these disparate worlds interact, the question is – who's really in control of the characters' lives?

Arcadia is out now from Faber&Faber/Touchpress. The novel is also available as an interactive app, which you can download for free from the app store. Check out the trailer here:
