Giveaway - The Swan Thieves - Elizabeth Kostova

Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have 3 paperback copies of The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova to giveaway. I reviewed this title in audio format earlier this year. This would make a great selection for a book club - there's a reading guide available as well.

From the publisher:

"Andrew Marlow, a psychiatrist, 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 the renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes Marlow's patient.


When Oliver refuses to talk or cooperate, Marlow finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this silent 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.
Moving 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."

Get started now - read an excerpt of The Swan Thieves. Listen to an excerpt of The Swan Thieves. Watch a video of Elizabeth discussing her book. Also on Facebook.

Simply comment to be entered. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. One winner per mailing address. Ends Sat. Dec 4 at 6 pm EST.  Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.

Oh man, I remember when this made it big around the book blog circuit. I just came across it, again the other day and almost picked it up. I'll still buy it even if I don't win but I might as well throw my name in the hat, first. :O)
