Caboodle Firsts: Be one of the first 100 people to read The Best Way to Bury Your Husband

The Best Way to Bury Your Husband

We're giving 100 booklovers the chance to read The Best Way to Bury Your Husband, the thought-provoking new novel by Alexia Casale, before it's out in bookshops next March. 

Four new friends. Four dead bodies. One big problem . . .

Sally never meant to cave her husband's head in with a skillet. Or at least she didn't until suddenly, she did.

But Sally isn't the only woman in town being pushed to breaking point. When coincidence brings four strangers together, a surprising solidarity is formed.

So can they find the best way to bury their husbands - and get away with it?

Darkly funny and with a big beating heart, The Best Way to Bury Your Husband takes four very different women, one unexpected friendship and several spades to unravel a complex issue with a light touch in this irresistible must-read.

'Poignant, funny, and warm, but also dark, searing and downright heart-breaking. Beautifully written with a perfect blend of humour, pathos, and important, hard-hitting messages.' Andrea Mara, author of No One Saw a Thing

'A darkly comedic story with hijinks that will leave you torn between shock and horrified laughter. Casale has tackled a heart-breaking topic with the dexterity and nuance it deserves. I don't condone murder, but I would like to join the Lockdown Ladies' Burial Club now, please!' Jesse Sutanto, author of Dial A for Aunties

'I loved this book! Extremely well-written with just the right kind of dry humour which had me giggling to myself throughout the book.' Early Reader Review
