A Free Ebook Birthday Gift From Virago

To celebrate our 40th birthday, we asked forty of our writers to write something for us inspired by the number 40. The result is Virago is 40 – A Celebration, a very special and surprising collection as our writers continue to engage us, challenge us, tease us and confound us, as they have done from the very beginning.

    Unfortunately this is not available n Australia from Amazon, and I do not posses iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
    Could someone perhaps organise another method of download for us Down Under?

      Links have now been added for Australian ebook retailers as well.

    Amazon said it was for UK residents only :(

    This looks like a fabulous collection. Is there any way Kindle owners in the US can download this Ebook?

    Is there any way to access your free Ebook in the U.S.?

    The link to download the free book at Amazon isn’t working for me; it just kicks me back to this page. The iBookstore link appears to be working, but, unfortunately, I don’t have an iOs device..

    Unfortunately there’s no download possibilities for Europe (except UK). Any chance in the near future?

    I would love to download this book! I adore Sara Waters and Margaret Atwood! Please make a link for US folks! I will sing Virago’s praises! Thank you!

    I think this book is a wonderful idea, however, I tried all four sites that you listed for Australia and sadly they either list they you can’t download or the book is not there.
    Will this issue be fixed in the near future? Or is there another link I can try?

    Hello. Will this book be made available for US readers? I understand international copyrights can be problematic, but I’d certainly love to read it!

    Hi there, I live in South Africa. Will any of these links work for me? Thanks for your help.
