ARE YOU LISTENING? FRIDAY: THE THIRD REICH - A GIVEAWAY

WELCOME TO BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S" 
ARE YOU LISTENING? DAY" 
I AM EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE TODAY'S
AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....
GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE THIRD REICH
A MACMILLAN AUDIO BOOK
BY ROBERTO BOLANO
READ BY SIMON VANCE
ABOUT THE BOOK:
On vacation with his girlfriend, Ingeborg, the German war games champion Udo Berger returns to a small town on the Costa Brava where he spent the summers of his childhood. Soon they meet another vacationing German couple, Charly and Hanna, who introduce them to a band of locals—the Wolf, the Lamb, and El Quemado—and to the darker side of life in a resort town.

Late one night, Charly disappears without a trace, and Udo’s well-ordered life is thrown into upheaval; while Ingeborg and Hanna return to their lives in Germany, he refuses to leave the hotel. Soon he and El Quemado are enmeshed in a round of Third Reich, Udo’s favorite World War II strategy game, and Udo discovers that the game’s consequences may be all too real.

Written in 1989 and found among Roberto Bolaño’s papers after his death, The Third Reich is a stunning exploration of memory and violence. Reading this quick, visceral novel, we see a world-class writer coming into his own—and exploring for the first time the themes that would de?ne his masterpieces The Savage Detectives and 2666. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Roberto Bolaño was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1953. He grew up in Chile and Mexico City, where he was a founder of the Infrarealist poetry movement. His first full-length novel, The Savage Detectives, received the Herralde Prize and the Rómulo Gallegos Prize when it appeared in 1998. Roberto Bolaño died in Blanes, Spain, at the age of fifty.

ABOUT THE READER:
Simon Vance began his recording career at the age of 6 when he read Winnie-the-Pooh aloud into a microphone. At age 11 he was given his own tape recorder and mike.

“I was very much into the BBC Radio comedy shows, so most of what I did was to make up silly stories and record them using lots of silly voices.” He laughs. “That set the stage for my career.”

In his 26 years as a narrator, the Englishman with the gorgeous voice and remarkable facility for characterization has recorded hundreds of books for many producers. Recent titles include Oscar Wilde’s THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY, which is a 2009 Audies finalist, Dickens’s GREAT EXPECTATIONS, also an Audies finalist and Earphones Award winner, Trollope’s The Warden, Kate Summerscale’s nonfiction THE SUSPICIONS OF MR. WHICHER, and Stieg Larsson’s mystery bestseller, THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. The last three all won Earphones. The ever-growing stack of prizes encourages Vance, who, despite his popularity, says, “I’m very judgmental, and I often find it too painful to listen to my own work. I only accepted that I was any good at this after getting my first Audie Award a couple of years ago.”

What an interesting post. I wonder if his writing style exhibits some of his poetry. Needless to say I'm intrigued with this book. Thanks for the opportunity.

I'm always a bit cautious when an unpublished manuscript of a great writer surfaces, but I'm interested to see what this new book has to offer.

Because of her disappearance, the mystery becomes enlarged when Udo becomes involved with El Quemado. I just have to know how it ends.
