Contest - Win Jennifer Gilmore's The Mothers and Monica Drake's The Stud Book and a $100 Threadless Gift Certificate

The Mothers The Stud Book

Since today is Mother's Day, this week's prizes are two of the year's finest literary explorations of motherhood, Jennifer Gilmore's The Mothers and Monica Drake's The Stud Book.

For a chance at winning these novels and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, share your favorite fictional mother from pop culture (books, television, film, or theater). My choice: Rosa Achmetowna from Alina Brodky's novel The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine, one of the most fascinating mothers ever portrayed.

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

Jennifer Gilmore's novel The Mothers
Monica Drake's novel The Stud Book

A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.

If you have already have these books or they don't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for them.

The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (May 17th).
