Giveaway - The Unnamed - Joshua Ferris

Looking for a great book club selection? Look no further. The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris would make a great choice - and there is a reading club guide available. And thanks to the Hachette Book Group I have 3 copies to giveaway.

What's it about? From the publisher:

"He was going to lose the house and everything in it.

The rare pleasure of a bath, the copper pots hanging above the kitchen island, his family-again he would lose his family. He stood inside the house and took stock. Everything in it had been taken for granted. How had that happened again? He had promised himself not to take anything for granted and now he couldn't recall the moment that promise had given way to the everyday.

Tim Farnsworth is a handsome, healthy man, aging with the grace of a matinee idol. His wife Jane still loves him, and for all its quiet trials, their marriage is still stronger than most. Despite long hours at the office, he remains passionate about his work, and his partnership at a prestigious Manhattan law firm means that the work he does is important. And, even as his daughter Becka retreats behind her guitar, her dreadlocks and her puppy fat, he offers her every one of a father's honest lies about her being the most beautiful girl in the world.
He loves his wife, his family, his work, his home. He loves his kitchen. And then one day he stands up and walks out. And keeps walking.

THE UNNAMED is a dazzling novel about a marriage and a family and the unseen forces of nature and desire that seem to threaten them both. It is the heartbreaking story of a life taken for granted and what happens when that life is abruptly and irrevocably taken away."

Get a head start - read an excerpt of The Unnamed.

You can find Joshua Ferris on Facebook. Check out the website for The Unnamed.

Simply comment to be entered to win a copy. Open to US and Canada, no PO boxes. Limit one per mailing address.  Ends Sat. Oct. 9th at 6 pm EST.
