<-- 1) Do you like to read good fiction?
<-- 2) Do you know who these lads are?
Here's the way this is going to work.
I will let this contest play out until sometime in the [God hasten it] upcoming weekend.... you must make a good guess at who these lads ARE!
I will even give you a hint or two.
1) The answer is one word!
2) They like to use profanity in a loud, amplified manner.
Your choice of a new novel by Jim Crace, All That Follows -- or the newest from Ian McEwan, entitled Solar.
If you are stumped..... like if you have not smoked a joint in the past few years [for instance] just guess a random WORD!
The person closest to the one word, shall win.
Secondly, if more than one person guesses the exactly RIGHT word, I will have a draw!
New deadline -- SUNDAY AFTERNOON -- JULY 18TH.
NOTE: Offer not valid if your mailing address is somewhere other than on the planet Earth.
LOW-FLYING GRATUITOUS HINT #3 -- Every letter in the magical word appears in highlighted mauve format in the preceding sentence.
