Last month the giveaway book, plucked fresh from the shelves of our used bookstore, Old Saratoga Books, was the novel "In My Sister's Country", by Lise Haines. The randomly-selected winner is Lady Roxi. Congrats, my Lady! I'll be contacting you immediately after finishing this post to get your mailing address.
For the Rainy Month of April (rainy days = prime reading time, if you ask me), I am offering a gently used hardcover copy of a modern classic novel, D.M. Thomas' The White Hotel (NY: Viking, 1981, second printing). This is the most popular of the writings of the Cornish-born author and relates the story of a woman undergoing psychoanalysis from Dr. Sigmund Freud himself. She is an opera singer suffering from strange psychosomatic pains and fears, and there is a thread of narrative about her visions of the future and the Holocaust. Wikipedia has a longer discussion of the book's themes here.
To enter this book giveaway contest, all you need to do is leave a comment below before the deadline, April 30th, midnight (Eastern Standard Time). Good luck everyone!
