GFY Giveaway: How to Start a Fire by Lisa Lutz


freaky-fug-friday

Happy summer to the Northern Hemisphere of Fug Nation! Our book giveaways are BACK!

71uZ96ZELhL

We are lucky enough to have FIVE copies of the news Lisa Lutz book to give away here today. What’s it about, you ask? I can help you. Via Goodreads:

From a bestselling writer, a story of unexpected friendship—three women thrown together in college who grow to adulthood united and divided by secrets, lies, and a single night that shaped all of them

When UC Santa Cruz roommates Anna and Kate find passed-out Georgiana Leoni on a lawn one night, they wheel her to their dorm in a shopping cart. Twenty years later, they gather around a campfire on the lawn of a New England mansion. What happens in between—the web of wild adventures, unspoken jealousies, and sudden tragedies that alter the course of their lives—is charted with sharp wit and aching sadness in this meticulously constructed novel.

Anna, the de facto leader, is fearless and restless—moving fast to stay one step ahead of her demons. Quirky, contemplative Kate is a natural sidekick but a terrible wingman (“If you go home with him, might I suggest breathing through your mouth”). And then there’s George: the most desired woman in any room, and the one most likely to leave with the worst man.

Shot through with the crackling dialogue, irresistible characters, and propulsive narrative drive that make Lutz’s books so beloved, How to Start a Fire pulls us deep into Anna, Kate, and George’s complicated bond and pays homage to the abiding, irrational love we share with the family we choose.

THE TASK: I shall be picking the winner at random, but please comment and tell us your favorite campfire snack. (I’m hungry.)  Good luck!

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday. (US and Canada residents only, unfortunately.) FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you.

Question, dear Fug Nation:

Spy: Susan Cooper Undercover' Berlin Photocall

Do we think these trousers are inching their way towards a Martha Stewart Gold Capri situation? And if yes, is it possible that’s actually — to once again borrow from the master — a good thing?

Fug or Fab: Amal Alamuddin Clooney

After those first two outings in black, I like that Amal is embracing other parts of the rainbow on the red carpet.

The satiny gown is definitely a romantic idea, but everything therein looks like it’s been placed rather lopsidedly on the shelf, no? Maybe the chicken-cutlet bra — one of those that sticks to your skin — wasn’t applied evenly, like when you put the  pegs in your bookshelf and then don’t notice until you put on the shelf that one side is lower than the other. It COULD just be the angle, but regardless. She’s statuesque, and there’s a certain glamour here, but I’m not sure if it’s Full-Price Fab or being peddled at a discount. Both of which are more than I can say for Intern George’s pants. Those suckers aren’t even trying. In all these years of his GFY employ, when he fed us snacks and rubbed our shoulders and said soothing things to us about our hair, did he not learn ANYTHING? Might be time for a refresher course, George. Our martinis aren’t going to mix themselves.
