Giveaway - Admission - Jean Hanff Korelitz


Looking for your next book club selection? Something different? What about Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz? And there's a reading guide as well.


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have 3 copies to giveaway.


From the publisher:

"Admissions. Admission. Aren't there two sides to the word? And two opposing sides...It's what we let in, but it's also what we let out."

For years, 38-year-old Portia Nathan has avoided the past, hiding behind her busy (and sometimes punishing) career as a Princeton University admissions officer and her dependable domestic life. Her reluctance to confront the truth is suddenly overwhelmed by the resurfacing of a life-altering decision, and Portia is faced with an extraordinary test. Just as thousands of the nation's brightest students await her decision regarding their academic admission, so too must Portia decide whether to make her own ultimate admission.

Admission is at once a fascinating look at the complex college admissions process and an emotional examination of what happens when the secrets of the past return and shake a woman's life to its core."


Read an excerpt of Admission. Listen to a BlogTalk Radio interview with Jean.


Leave a comment to be entered. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday May 15 at 6 pm EST.
