Competition: Dezeen are giving readers the chance to win one of five copies of architecture and design critic Will Wiles' novel about how interior design affects the way we live, called Care of Wooden Floors.
Congratulations to the winners! Svenja Richter from Germany, Chin-Ju Wei from China, Davide Balzano from Italy, Byron Cheng from the USA and Pavel Kozlicek from the Czech Republic all won a copy of Care of Wooden Floors.
The narrator agrees to look after the apartment of his old university friend, a minimalist composer, hoping the calm of an immaculate domestic environment in an unfamiliar eastern European city will inspire him to fulfil his potential as a writer. But things do not go entirely to plan. One accident leads to another and before long he is wrestling with questions of life, death and how to take care of his friend's precious wooden floors.
Care of Wooden Floors was featured on Radio 4's Book at Bedtime, was one of the 2012 Waterstones 11 and was longlisted for the Desmond Elliot Prize. The book was recently released in a paperback version and retails at £12.99.
This competition is now closed. Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
