The Guardian:

The eight books chosen for the inaugural Fiction Uncovered will be announced in spring 2011 and go into a Waterstone's "3 for 2" promotion. Foyles and The Book Depository will also support the promotion, and there will be a partnership with The Reading Agency to reach libraries and reading groups. Events at the Hay festival, the Shoreditch House Literary Salon and literary club night To Hell with the Lighthouse will be held in spring and summer 2011, and James Meek, Matt Thorne, Tibor Fischer and Bernardine Evaristo will be among the writers offering launch recommendations on the project's website.
