January 2009 Door Prize

The winner of December's drawing for a signed copy of Keith Donohue's The Stolen Child is Carol Mintz. Congratulations to you, Carol!

Our door prize for January 2009 is a copy of Maria Semple's new novel, This One is Mine.

From Violet Parry is living the quintessential life of luxury in the Hollywood Hills with David, her rock-and-roll manager husband, and her darling toddler, Dot. She has the perfect life--except that she's deeply unhappy. David expects the world of Violet but gives little of himself in return. When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the ESPN sportscaster savant who falls into her trap. For all their recklessness, Violet and Sally will discover that David and Jeremy have a few surprises of their own. THIS ONE IS MINE is a compassionate and wickedly funny satire about our need for more--and the often disastrous choices we make in the name of happiness.

To enter the drawing please e-mail your name, mailing address, and blog address (optional) to the Estella's Revenge editors at estellabooks (at) gmail (dot) com by January 31st. No worries, we won't share any of your information with others.

Good luck!
