Contest - Win New Novels by Hari Kunzru and Heidi Julavits and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate

This past week I finished two of the year's finest novels, Hari Kunzru's Gods Without Men and Heidi Julavits's The Vanishers. Upon finishing The Vanishers, I looked at the back panel and noticed that three of my favorite writers (Jennifer Egan, Karen Russell, and Tom McCarthy) blurbed the book. That made me wonder, who would I most like to write blurbs for my own book...

To enter, name the one person you would be most honored to blurb your book (whether or not you have written one). If you are no fan of blurbs, feel free to state that.

One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:

Hari Kunzru' novel Gods Without Men
Heidi Julavits's novel The Vanishers

A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like A Voyage of Discovery, A Book Lover, November Was a Good Month, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, music-related t-shirts like The Official Guide to Music, Boom Box, Sound of the Dark, or anything else that catches your fancy.

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (March 9th).
