August BOOK CLUB Giveaway – By Nightfall, by Michael Cunningham

By Nightfall, by Michael Cunningham

The time passes so quickly! It’s time for another BOOK CLUB Giveaway. We are excited to be working with a new BOOK CLUB partner for another round of exciting book club selections.

Our next few books are from Picador, and we had to make some hard choices to see just which books we would be discussing because they had a ton of books that interested us. Jen and I each agreed on this first one, and in the next few months you will get to see what we each picked personally. I hope that you will join us as we discuss Michael Cunningham’s By Nightfall here at Linus’s Blanket on Tuesday, August 23rd.

Please consider picking up a copy and joining us! I have 5 copies to share with my US readers.

From the publisher’s website.

Peter and Rebecca Harris, mid-forties, are prosperous denizens of Manhattan. He’s an art dealer, she’s an editor. They live well. They have their troubles—their ebbing passions, their wayward daughter, and certain doubts about their careers—but they feel as though they’re happy. Happy enough. Until Rebecca’s much younger, look-alike brother, Ethan (known in the family as Mizzy, short for the Mistake), comes to visit. And after he arrives, nothing will ever be the same again.

This poetic and compelling masterpiece is a heartbreaking look at a marriage and the way we now live. Full of shocks and aftershocks, By Nightfall is a novel about the uses and meaning of beauty, and the place of love in our lives.
