I haven’t been around for the Sunday Salon in recent weeks so I thought I’d make up for my absence by offering a giveaway. I was lucky enough to win a copy of Josh Henkin’s Matrimony in a giveaway a few months back – and now Josh is offering up a signed copy of the soon to be released paperback to one of Blue Archipelago’s visitors.
Here’s a description of the book:
It is 1987, and Julian Wainwright, aspiring writer and Waspy son of New York City old money, meets beautiful, Jewish Mia Mendelsohn in the laundry room at Graymont College. So begins a love affair that, spurred on by family tragedy, will take Julian and Mia across the country and back, through several college towns, spanning twenty years.
And some information about Josh from his website over at JoshuaHenkin.com:
Joshua Henkin is the author of the novel MATRIMONY (Pantheon, 2007, Vintage, 2008), which was named a New York Times Notable Book, a Book Sense Highlight Pick of the Year, and a Borders Original Voices Selection. He is also the author of the novel SWIMMING ACROSS THE HUDSON, which was named a Los Angeles Times notable book. His short stories have been published in Glimmer Train, Ploughshares, The Southern Review, The Yale Review, Triquarterly, DoubleTake, The North American Review, The New England Review, Boulevard, and elsewhere.
