The Literary Life and Giveaway of Composed by Rosanne Cash

You might have seen some buzz on Twitter last week about Penguin USA's new monthly radio show, which is released on the last Tuesday of every month but is available all the time at Penguin's Radio Room page.

The show is called "The Literary Life," and it has a unique premise:

Completely written, produced, and hosted by Penguin employees, "The Literary Life" features literary fiction and nonfiction from bestselling, critically acclaimed authors and fast-rising newcomers. It’s hosted by Jake Morrissey, Executive Editor at Riverhead Books. Each episode will debut on the last Tuesday of the month.
The show includes segments that give the listener an inside look at publishing, that allow authors to speak their mind, and that provide author-musicians with a venue for performing. Here's what you'll find on the first The Literary Life show:
In this episode, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash, author of the new bestselling memoir Composed, answers questions and performs “The World Unseen.” Maile Meloy, author of the bestselling collection Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It, and Doug Dorst, author of The Surf Guru and Alive in Necropolis, discuss the art of the short story. Sloane Crosley, author of the bestselling essay collections I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number, rants about punctuation.
For more about the show, be sure to visit The Literary Life's Facebook page.


To celebrate the debut episode, Penguin USA has offered me the chance to host a giveaway for Rosanne Cash's Composed, which is featured on the show. This quick giveaway (winner picked on Friday, September 10 at noon EDT) is open to U.S. and Canada mailing addresses only (PO boxes are fine). To enter, fill out the following form. Winner will be picked by a random number generator and all address will be deleted immediately after the winner's data have been verified. Good luck!

I love all this book-related podcasts, even though they compete with my book listening time!

Have you had any luck subscribing to Literary Life via iTunes? I can't find it ...

Because I don't use an iPod, I don't use iTunes, so I can't help you there.
