By now, you probably know that BookPage editors have been quite taken with Gail Caldwell‘s memoir, Let’s Take the Long Way Home (an interview with Caldwell is our August cover story, after all). Caldwell wrote the book after her best friend Caroline died of lung cancer in 2002; the subtitle is “a memoir of friendship.”
Let’s Take the Long Way Home is everything a memoir should be. It is filled with beautiful, precise language and a vivid setting. It will cause you to reflect both inwardly and outside of yourself. It will fill you with sadness and also move you by the descriptions of a powerful relationship.
Since we’ve been talking about this book since November of 2009, I figured it was only fair to give you a chance at reading a free copy. We have FIVE finished copies of Let’s Take the Long Way Home in our office. To enter to win one of your own, leave us a message with your favorite book to share with a friend.
