I'm excited to to bring you next month's
Author/Reader Discussion book!
We will be reading and discussing Fight For Your Long Day
with author Alex Kudera
In order to stimulate discussion,
Atticus Books and Alex have agreed to give away
10 paper copies
to US residents only
Here is the Goodreads description:
Meet Cyrus Duffleman--"Duffy" for short--an adjunct professor who can barely afford his two-room apartment. Forget about an unfinished novel: He'd be thrilled with health insurance. Still, he gamely shuffles to four urban universities each day to teach, and works a security guard graveyard shift once a week. Cobbled together, he can almost make a living. But today, Duffy's routine isn't quite so predictable: The cryptic mumblings of a possibly psychotic student. Government protests and a bow-and-arrow assassination. Frenzied attempts to spare his sanity (and safety)--all while a female coed quietly eyes him. Part A Confederacy of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole), part Straight Man (Richard Russo), FIGHT FOR YOUR LONG DAY is a promising debut from a new literary talent. It will resonate with anyone who has ever known, been taught by, felt sorry for, or lived the life of an adjunct professor.
This giveaway will run through April 8th.
Winners will be announced here and via email on April 9th.
