Win 20 titles in the Penguin Vintage Minis series

Win 20 titles in the Penguin Vintage Minis series, including books by Haruki Murakami, Joseph Heller Nigella Lawson and Julian Barnes

Vintage Minis

The 20 titles in the Vintage Minis series deliver the world’s greatest writers, all exploring the experiences that make us human. These stylish, entertaining books look at the whole spectrum of life – from birth to death.

This new series of short books uses previously published material by great contemporary and classic writers from the extensive and award-winning Vintage backlist. From Haruki Murakami on desire to Joseph Heller on the nature of work, from eating by Nigella Lawson to death by Julian Barnes. These exquisite books, which are low on price but big on content, cover the human themes closest to our hearts.

Vintage is not only home to the world’s greatest authors, it also nurtures new writers and revives yesterday’s classics

Vintage authors represent the best in creativity and quality and have won the most prestigious prizes the book world has to offer, including the Man Booker, the Samuel Johnson and the Nobel.

We have one set of 20 titles in the Vintage Minis series (published this month at £3.50 per title) to give away. To enter, tell us:
