This week I am hosting Elliott Holt at one of my reading series, Literary BFFs, where she and her friend Marie-Helene Bertino will discuss their books, friendship, and craft.
Elliott's impressive debut novel You Are One of Them has been widely praised, with the New York Tiems weighing in:
"The main thing, though, is that 'You Are One of Them' is a hugely absorbing first novel from a writer with a fluid, vivid style and a rare knack for balancing the pleasure of entertainment with the deeper gratification of insight."
For a chance at winning this book and a $100 Threadless gift certificate, tell me who your "literary BFF" is (a friend, website, critic, newspaper, magazine, publisher, writer, etc.).
I am personally infatuated with Tin House, both the literary quarterly and publisher.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
Elliott Holt's debut novel You Are One of Them
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 this book or it doesn't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (June 14th).
