Win a FitBit and Lionel Shriver’s brand new novel - together worth over £100

 the motion of the body through space

To celebrate the release of The Motion of the Body Through Space, the new novel by Lionel Shriver, we're giving one lucky gransnetter the chance to win a Fitbit Inspire HR and a copy of the book - together worth over £100. Five runners-up will also win a copy of the book. 

From the author of the award-winning novel We Need to Talk About Kevin comes a story of an obsession, of a marriage, of a betrayal.

Allergic to group activities of any kind, all her life Serenata has run, swum, and cycled – on her lonesome. But now that she’s hit 60, all that physical activity has destroyed her knees.

As she contemplates surgery with dread, her previously sedentary husband Remington, recently and ignominiously redundant, chooses this precise moment to discover exercise.

Which should be good for his health, right? Yet as he joins the cult of fitness that seems increasingly to consume the whole of the Western world, her once-modest husband burgeons into an unbearable narcissist. Ignoring all his other obligations in the service of extreme sport, he engages a saucy, taunting personal trainer named Bambi, who treats his wife with contempt.

When Remington announces his intention to compete in a legendarily gruelling triathlon, MettleMan, Serenata is sure he's going to end up injured or dead – but the stubbornness of an ageing man in Lycra is not to be underestimated.

The Motion of the Body Through Space is published on 7 May and is available from all good online bookshops. You can get the hardback copy HERE, and the ebook HERE.
