This week’s giveaway:
A Hero for the People: Stories of the Brazilian Backlands
By Arthur Powers (Press 53, 2013)
I loved it. A LOT. This is a collection of stories, each one crafted and fine-tuned. They leave you satisfied and yet wanting more. There’s an adventure and, within that, a deeper theme. You almost get the sense that you’re traveling along through Brazil’s backlands, and that the people there, while delightfully unique, aren’t so different from you. There’s a taste to this book that made me look up Powers’s other work.
Accepting entries until 7 AM Eastern one week from today.
The fine print: One entry per person, please. You must have a valid email address (filled in on the comment form below), which I promise not to use for anything other than this giveaway (it’s not public after you type it in). You enter the email as part of the comment form–you do not have to include it in the body of your comment. Good luck!
