Giveaway - We All Love the Beautiful Girls - Joanne Proulx

Let's start off the week with another great giveaway! We All Love the Beautiful Girls by Joanne Proulx is perfect for "fans of Rick Moody, Lauren Groff, and Celeste Ng."

From Grand Central Publishing:

"Who suffers when the privileged fall?

One frigid winter night, Mia and Michael Slate's comfortable world dissolves in an instant when they discover that their best friend has cheated them out of their life savings. At the same time, a few doors down, their teenaged son passes out in the snow at a party--a mistake whose consequences will shatter not just their family, but an entire community.

In this arresting, masterful page-turner shot through with fierce, clear-eyed compassion and a sublime insight into human fragility, award-winning novelist Proulx explores the savage underpinnings of betrayal, infidelity, and revenge--and a multilayered portrait of love, in all its glory, that no reader will soon forget." Read an excerpt of We All Love the Beautiful Girls.

"Joanne Proulx’s fist novel Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet won Canada’s Sunburst Award for Fantastic Fiction and was named a best debut by The Globe and Mail and Kirkus Reviews. A feature film adaptation will be released in 2018. A graduate of the Bennington Writing Seminars, Joanne lives, writes and teaches in Ottawa, Canada."

I am very interested to see how the characters in this novel cope with the tragic event(s) in their lives given their particular situation and "fragility." The question that introduces the synopsis here is a compelling one! Thanks for this opportunity to win. Best, Kara S

We all suffer when the privileged suffer! How would I know how to dress, where to go, what to enjoy if there weren't my betters around to tell me what's "in"?
