With a career spanning over three decades and comparisons to Munro, Updike, Chekov and Pinter, you’d think Edith Pearlman would be a household name. Not so. In the Financial Times, Sam Leith admitted  ’I'd never even heard of her. Had you? Well, you have now: and you should set about making up for lost time.’  Thanks to Pushkin Press her collected short stories are being published in the UK for the first time.Peter Kemp in the Sunday Times agreed.

“This generous spread of new and selected stories, written over a 35-year period, exhilaratingly exhibits Pearlman’s remarkable breadth of subject matter. Settings range from London during the Blitz to condominiums in New England today. Strikingly diverse locations, each atmospherically conjured up, include dusty little towns in Latin America, a riverside inn in the Hungarian countryside, ravaged postwar Paris, Cape Cod summer houses, television studios, hospital wards [and] an apartment block in Jerusalem.”

We have five copies of her Pulitzer-nominated collection BINOCULAR VISION to give away. To win, answer the following question:
