A Matrimonial Giveaway



Serendipitously in conjunction with my 1 year blogiversary, Joshua Henkin has generously offered me a signed copy of his New York Times Notable book, Matrimony, which has recently been released in paperback, to give away here. While I've yet to read the copy of it waiting for me on my bookshelf, I've heard countless great things about Matrimony and I'm excited to have the opportunity to host this giveaway!

Book Description:

It'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 Mia'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 you're young, and to try to do it afresh on the brink of middle age.
