> Matrimony is being published in paperback on August 26 — great news! Even better, you can win a signed copy of Joshua Henkin’s novel right here, at my blog. Of course, you’ll have to do something bookwormish. In my comments section. Neatly.
I’m so pleased that this 2007 New York Times Notable Book has done so well; perhaps copies will start showing up in South Korea soon.
To be eligible to win a copy, leave me a comment about matrimony in literature. Casting your memory back over all the novels you’ve read, which characters’ marriages stand out for you? Is there one you think is remarkably good? Remarkably bad? Or just strange? Why? If you prefer literary gossip, is there a literary figure whose marriage you find noteworthy? Why?
On August 26, I’ll draw the winning entrant’s name…using my left hand, fourth finger and thumb. Good luck!
