The Story of a New Name book coverAccording to The New Yorker,Elena Ferrante is one of Italy’s best-known least-known contemporary writers.” An international literary sensation, Elena publishes under a pseudonym, so her identity remains unknown. I’m pleased to offer The Story of a New Name, the second in Ferrante’s best-selling Neapolitan trilogy. You’ve just got to experience her remarkable voice!

Ian McEwan has long been one of my favorites. The Children Act is the haunting story of a teen-age boy with a life-threatening disease who refuses medical treatment on religious grounds.The Children Act book cover

  1. Valorie, I’m too curious about these intriguing books not to enter the contest. One can never have too many books since they’re the good friends that are always welcome to stay past tea-time.

  2. Hi Valorie! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway; both books sound very interesting. I’ve enjoyed most the Ian McEwan books I’ve read since first reading Atonement years ago. But I’ve also been very curious of Elena Ferrante’s books, I’ve heard so many good things about the series and I’m always up for reading more Italian authors so I think I’m more interested in her book between the two 🙂

  3. I’m excited to discover your blog! I blog about Children’s/YA/Adult literature and spirituality so am really interested in your discussions of books here. I would be happy to win either of these books. I have been wanting to get into the Ferrante series for awhile so this is a perfect giveaway! Thank you!

  4. I’ve read Atonement by Ian McEwan,it was amazing,loved it. I’d love to read this recent work of his. Never read Elena Ferrante, may should start now!

  5. I’d love to read The Children Act, I’ve heard fantastic things about Ian McEwan so I’d love to read his stories. Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day.

  6. Book books look good. Thank you for the opportunity to win one. I like Ian McEwan. The other author is new to me.

  7. Ooh! I read My Brilliant Friend this year and would love to read the sequel. I’ve never read Ian McEwan but he also looks great. Thanks for this giveaway!

  8. Hi Valorie. So pleased to find another blog to follow – one can never have to many avenues to explore fiction. I like the sound go Ian’s book; it obviously raises some interesting issues.
