New Giveaway - Tim O'Brien!

This, ladies and gentlemen, may be the BEST book giveaway EVER. Yep. Thanks to the lovely people at Random House, I have four (count 'em - 4!) books to give away to one lucky winner. We are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the National Book Award win for Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien with four brand-new reissues: Going After Cacciato, If I Die In a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home, Northern Lights and Tomcat in Love. 




Although a Minnesota native, we happily claim O'Brien as a transplanted Texan - he's been teaching at Texas State University in San Marcos since 2003. He is probably best known for The Things They Carried (which was my introduction to this author almost 25 years ago). If you aren't familiar with his work you can check out my profile of the author here. An update to that profile: In June 2013, O'Brien was awarded the $100,000 Pritzker Military Library Literature Award.
