THE IMPOSTER'S DAUGHTER AND JULIE & JULIA DOUBLE MEMOIR GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY
CLOSED
DOUBLE MEMOIR GIVEAWAY


JUNE 27 THROUGH JULY 18

ENTER TODAY!

THE IMPOSTER'S DAUGHTER
by Laurie Sandell

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Laurie Sandell grew up in awe (and sometimes in terror) of her larger-than-life father, who told jaw-dropping tales of a privileged childhood in Buenos Aires, academic triumphs, heroism during Vietnam, friendships with Kissinger and the Pope. As a young woman, Laurie unconsciously mirrors her dad, trying on several outsized personalities (Tokyo stripper, lesbian seductress, Ambien addict). Later, she lucks into the perfect job--interviewing celebrities for a top women's magazine. Growing up with her extraordinary father has given Laurie a knack for relating to the stars. But while researching an article on her dad's life, she makes an astonishing discovery: he's not the man he says he is--not even close. Now, Laurie begins to puzzle together three decades of lies and the splintered person that resulted from them--herself.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Laurie Sandell is a contributing editor at Glamour, where she writes cover stories, features, and personal essays. She has also written for Esquire, GQ, New York and In Style, among others. In her twenties, she spent four years traveling around the world, having unsavory experiences she later justified as "material."


JULIE AND JULIA
by Julie Powell

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film version is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

After spending a long, long time working as a temp, Julie Powell now writes in her pajamas at her home in Queens, New York, and occasionally serves as a butcher's apprentice.

That's a tough question...I've been wanting to read Julie & Julia since seeing the movie previews (I'd actually bought it for a friend a while ago and now I'm wishing I'd read it first), but I love the cover of the Imposter's Daughter and it sounds like such a great read. I think I'd like the Imposter's Daughter the most though...
