A couple of weeks ago I was raving about Lyndsay Faye's The Gods of Gotham. I noted that "Faye brilliantly captures the heart and soul of the seedier and more dangerous side of New York in the 1840s."
But don't just take my word for it. Among the many critics singing Faye's praise is NPR's Maureen Corrigan, who calls The Gods of Gotham the "worthiest successor yet to Caleb Carr's The Alienist." (You can read the full review in "Two Books That Delight in New York City's Dirt.")
Giveaway: Because I loved Faye's novel and think it would appeal to wide range of readers, I'm thrilled to be able to offer one of my readers a signed copy of The Gods of Gotham. This isn't just any signed copy: Lyndsay Faye and the generous folks at Amy Einhorn Books have offered to have the book personally inscribed. That's right, you can ask Faye to inscribe to you or to anyone you'd like. (Hint: It'd make a great Mother's or Father's Day gift or graduation gift.)
This giveaway is open to anyone with a U.S. or Canadian mailing address (no P.O. boxes). Just fill out the following form. I'll pick a winner on April 15 via a random number generator.
