Book Giveaway – Ron Currie, Jr.!
Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles by Ron Currie, Jr. hit the bookstores this week and I’m giving away two copies courtesy of Viking/Penguin Group. They are hard copies, first editions, first printings. My favorite kind of book.
In Flimsy the author, Ron Currie, Jr., writes a book about the character, Ron Currie, Jr., who writes a book about the woman he loves. Then he fakes his own death, which turns out to be a great career move. But then he pays the price. Essentially, it’s about love and desire, and loss and grief.
Currie is the winner of the 2009 Addison M. Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, as well as the New York Public Library Young Lions Award for his acclaimed debut, God is Dead. His 2009 novel, Everything Matters!, was an Indie Next Pick and one of Amazon’s 100 top books of 2009, and was named by the Los Angles Times as among the Best Fiction of 2009.
I’m new at this giveaway thing, so let’s make it fun. Tell me what you think the title refers to. If you are correct, you might win. Or you might win if your answer is the funniest. Totally up to me. Leave a comment with an email address. Sorry, you must reside in the U.S. Contest closes at midnight tonight.
Congrats to winner, Michael Magras!
