The Man in the Rockefeller Suit – Giveaway

Of all the newly acquired nonfiction on my shelves, one book, out this week, is calling to me more than any other: The Man in the Rockefeller Suit by Mark Seal. I vaguely remember the story of the Rockefeller who was not truly a Rockefeller three years ago when Clark Rockefeller was arrested (really? A Rockefeller named Clark? Shouldn’t that have been everyone’s first clue?), but I don’t really know much about his story. The question of how anyone could get away with claiming to be a Rockefeller, of all things, for years is beyond me, and I really can’t wait to find out.

If you’re interested in checking out The Man in the Rockefeller Suit, this excerpt is sure to lure you in.

In addition the copy on my shelves currently issuing a siren song, I also have one copy to give away to a reader with a US or Canadian mailing address. Enter by the end of the day Wednesday, June 8.

  • I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much these types of stories fascinate me. And I’m also a little awed by the brass ones it takes not only to think up something like this but then to pull it off. My poker face is just not that good. Thanks for hosting the giveaway. Either way this in on my list.

    This story is so intriguing. I think there was a TV movie made about it but I think its amazing that somebody could pull this off for any length of time. I guess you get enough people or the right people believing your story and it takes off. I didn’t realize there was a book about it and that thrills me! I want to read this and find out how he pulled it off…especially, as you mentioned, Jen, with the name Clark!

  • I got this one as an e-galley and have already read the first few chapters. It’s so fascinating!
