Hey everyone! I am delighted to be hosting a holiday giveaway of the book There Once Lived a Mother Who Loved Her Children, Until They Moved Back In by Ludmila Petrushevskaya. I reviewed the book last week and loved it, and I hope that you will too!
Tolstoy’s novel Anna Karenina opens with the quote, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Petrushevskaya explores that theme in this collection of novellas, exploring dysfunctional Soviet families filled with broken relationships and dreams. Her work was heavily censored for a while because the types of people she wrote about were at odds with the ideal Soviet family that the government wanted to portray.
So, here are the rules:
- US entries only.
- Winner has 48 hours to respond to my e-mail, otherwise I pick a new one.
- Have a wonderful holiday season! Yes, this is a rule. I want to spread cheer, dammit!
