The Improbability of Love was shortlisted for the Bailey's Prize and described by Lynn Barber as "a fast-paced imbroglio of skullduggery, dirty dealing, even murder" that "finishes with a sort of James Bond flourish".

We think Hannah Rothschild's brilliant satire about love, crime and the glitzy London art scene is perfectly placed as our August book of the month. Apply for a free copy now, devour over the summer and join us on 12th September to chat about the novel and put your questions to Hannah who will be joining us between 8.30 and 9.30pm.

Find out more about the book and apply for a free copy. We'll post on this discussion thread when the 50 have been selected next week.

Really fancy this! Book club & web chat seems a lot of fun! Trying to fill in the form but can see the message "This form is currently private and cannot be viewed by the public." even though I'm logged in. Am I doing something wrong??

The book giveaway is now closed. Sorry to those who applied after the closing date (on Monday). We'll be notifying those who have been selected later today. If you weren't lucky enough to get a free copy, do buy a kindle edition or copy and read over the summer ahead of our webchat with Hannah Rothschild on Monday 8 September, 8.30pm.

Make sure you're signed up to the book club newsletter to ensure you're the first to hear about book of the month giveaway and our other weekly book giveaways.

Thanks for letting us know and big apologies. We'd thought they were sent out a few weeks ago. We'll chase now.

Hey again, The kind folks at Bloomsbury have posted the books out this week so they should be with you by the beginning of next week latest. There was a problem at the warehouse where they'd run out of stock - always a good sign wink ENJOY!

Many thanks Rachel. Looking forward to getting my copy.
