Giveaway: The Headmaster's Wife

Summary: Like his father before him, Arthur Winthrop is the headmaster of Vermont's elite Lancaster School. It is the place he feels has given him his life, but is also the site of his undoing as events spiral out of his control. Found wandering naked in Central Park, he begins to tell his story to the police, but his memories collide into one another, and the true nature of things, a narrative of love, of marriage, of family, and of a tragedy Arthur does not know how to address emerges. Luminous and atmospheric, bringing to life the tight-knit enclave of a quintessential New England boarding school, the novel is part mystery, part love story, and an exploration of the ties of place and family. Beautifully written and compulsively readable, The Headmaster's Wife stands as a moving elegy to the power of love as an antidote to grief. -- Picador

I can't believe it's been almost a year since I reviewed THE HEADMASTER'S WIFE by Thomas Christopher Greene. I really liked this novel, both for the gorgeous writing and the unusual twists! I am happy to share that the paperback version of the novel is available today -- just check out the gorgeous new cover. I'm hoping this release brings a whole new audience to Mr. Green's very intriguing story!

THE HEADMASTER'S WIFE is truly unlike any book I've read. Mr. Greene is a terrific writer and it's evident throughout this novel. The prose is just wonderful. However, this book also pretty suspenseful. There is a rather surprising event that occurs about halfway through the novel which is guaranteed to throw readers for a loop. Not only did it hit me like a punch to the stomach, but it was also very well executed. I truly appreciated everything about this book!

To celebrate the paperback release of THE HEADMASTER'S WIFE, I have two copies available to giveaway courtesy of the publisher! To enter, just fill out the form below before March 9th at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will randomly select and notify the winners the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only. Good luck!
