Giveaway: Matrimony, by Joshua Henkin, and an offer to book groups

It is finally my turn to give away a copy of the new paperback release of Joshua Henkin's novel Matrimony! The author has kindly offered to inscribe the book for my lucky winner!

Matrimony, a New York Times Notable Book for 2007, is a really lovely story about relationships, and how they change and grow over the years. I reviewed it here, and there are also reviews at some of my favorite blogs:

Bookfoolery and Babble
The Literate Housewife
She is Too Fond of Books
Books and Cooks
Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'?
A Reader's Journal
Musings of a Bookish Kitty

Also, you can read author Joshua Henkin's guest posts on these blogs:

Books on the Brain
Planet Books
Musings of a Bookish Kitty
The Elegant Variation (several posts)

If you want to put your name in the hat for an inscribed copy of Matrimony, just leave me a comment on this post. I'll be conducting the drawing, in my very scientific way (letting one of the kids draw a name out of a colander) this Friday, September 26, after 8pm Pacific Time.

UPDATE:  A special offer from Joshua Henkin, author of Matrimony, for all book groups.  If you've read anything about Joshua Henkin on the book blogs, you know he is a big supporter of book groups.  And now, Henkin and his publisher are offering something special for all you book groups out there--in Mr. Henkin's words:
I wanted to let you know about a special time-bound offer that my publisher, Vintage, is making to book groups. Sign up by midnight September 30 and Vintage will set up a phone chat for your book group with me to discuss MATRIMONY. Normally, only five book groups are chosen among the entrants, but I have agreed to talk to all book groups that sign up. Here's the link to learn more, and to sign up: Randon House book group offer. I would be delighted to talk to your book group.
What a nice guy!
