Matrimony – Giveaway

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I reviewed the New York Times Notable Book, Joshua Henkin’s lovely, character-driven Matrimony?

And earlier this week when I let you know that it is now available in paperback?

Well, hold on to your hats, because you can WIN an inscribed copy, sent to you direct from the author, to anywhere in the world!

The Rules:

Leave a comment here letting me know why you would like this book. If you don’t leave this comment, I cannot enter you in the contest (make sure that your blog or email information is somewhere in the post).

You can triple your chances to win by writing about this contest on your own blog. If you don’t have a blog, you can triple your chances by emailing information about this contest to 5 people. Please cc me at devourers.books (AT) so I know you’ve sent out the email.

The contest will end Friday, September 5th (aka, have all entries in by whatever time I wake up on Saturday morning).

Not convinced yet?

Well, I will assume you’ve already checked out my review.

How about a video of Josh talking about the book?

So now I’m assuming you ARE interested.

If I’m correct, you may want to read what Joshua has to say about book groups (.doc), or even download the Matrimony reading group guide (.pdf).

If none of this is enough for you, you can also check out the list of Joshua’s paperback book tour appearances (below):
