Giveaway: There Once Lived A Mother Who Loved Her Children, Until They Moved Back In by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

A Penguin paperback Original from The New York Times Bestselling Author: Ludmilla Petrushevskaya.

Translated from the Russian, these three novellas tell disquieting and extreme stories of family what for almost two decades wee censored by the Russian government.  Petrushevskaya has often been likened to Edgar Allen Poe.

With an exceptional eye for detail, Petrushevskaya gives voice to those who wouldn’t normally be heard, demonstrating how much can be said about human connection with so few words.  Considered modern classics, especially in Russia, these novellas confirm the genius of an author with a gift for turning suffering and degradation into compassionate art.

The New York Times Book Review says, ” One of Russia’s best living writers…Her tales inhabit a borderline between this world and the next.”

Penguin Books has arranged for me to offer a copy for giveaway. You’re going to want to add this one to your library. So, please leave a comment below to enter my contest. Only U.S. addresses, please. And no P.O. boxes. I will choose one winner Monday, November 3. Good luck!

 

Thanks Penguin!

  1. A female Edgar Allan Poe! What a delight! This would make a great addition to a course I teach on “The Art of Edgar Allan Poe.” I’d love to have this addition to my library.

  2. Catchy title! The content really speaks to the situation facing a lot of American parents. The Russian perspective will be interesting to read!
