Giveaway - The Swan Thieves - Elizabeth Kostova


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have 3! audio book copies of The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova to giveaway. This is one I can't wait to listen to! There's a full cast of readers for this one including Treat Williams and Anne Heche.

What's it about? From the publisher:

"Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.

Ranging from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love, THE SWAN THIEVES is a story of obsession, the losses of history, and the power of art to preserve human hope."

Listen to an excerpt of The Swan Thieves. or Read an excerpt of The Swan Thieves.

Watch a video of the author discussing The Swan Thieves.

And to say thank you to my followers, now numbering over 400! - this giveaway is for you! So you must be follower of A Bookworm's World to enter this giveaway. Open to both US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday February 20th at 6 pm EST.
