Giveaway - The Imposter's Daughter - Laurie Sandell


Here's something a little different from the great folks at the Hachette Book Group. Laurie Sandell's memoir, The Imposter's Daughter is told in graphic novel form - but it's not for kids - it deals with adult topics.

From the publisher:

"Laurie Sandell grew up in awe (and sometimes in terror) of her larger-than-life father, who told jaw-dropping tales of a privileged childhood in Buenos Aires, academic triumphs, heroism during Vietnam, friendships with Kissinger and the Pope. As a young woman, Laurie unconsciously mirrors her dad, trying on several outsized personalities (Tokyo stripper, lesbian seductress, Ambien addict). Later, she lucks into the perfect job--interviewing celebrities for a top women's magazine. Growing up with her extraordinary father has given Laurie a knack for relating to the stars. "

Read an excerpt of The Impster's Daughter.

Five copies up for grabs - simply comment to be entered. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Sunday August 1st at 6 pm EST.
