2008: A Giveaway! – Matrimony
It’s time for another giveaway!
Joshua Henkin, the author of Matrimony, has offered to give away a signed copy of his new paperback!Â Matrimony was named a 2007 NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK, a Book Sense Highlight Pick of the Year, and a Borders Original Voices Selection. The back of the book reads:
Itâ€™s the fall of 1986, and Julian Wainwright, an aspiring writer, arrives at Graymont College in New England. Here he meets Carter Heinz, with whom he develops a strong but ambivalent friendship, and beautiful Mia Mendelsohn, with whom he falls in love. Spurred on by a family tragedy, Julian and Miaâ€™s love affair will carry them to graduation and beyond, taking them through several college towns, over the next fifteen years. Starting at the height of the Reagan era and ending in the new millennium, Matrimony is a stunning novel of love and friendship, money and ambition, desire and tensions of faith. It is a richly detailed portrait of what it means to share a life with someone-to do it when youâ€™re young, and to try to do it afresh on the brink of middle age.
I enjoyed reading Matrimony, and you can read my review here. You can find more information about Joshua Henkin at his web site, http://www.joshuahenkin.com.
