Book Giveaway~ The Imposter's Daughter by Laurie Sandell

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.

I have to say that I recently stumbled onto the site and I'm thrilled! I heard about 'The Imposter's Daughter' and the pretense over two months ago, but I completely forgot about the release date. So thanks for the reminder! This has been the summer of obsession for words and pictures (let me explain) like in my recent reads of: 'Persepolis,' 'Maus,' and 'Epilepsy.' (all of which are stories about real people and real events drawn through the eyes of a graphic novelist) So whole heartily I wish to enter: for by reading her example, I hope to hear her story, be inspired and one day write my story in a similar fashion.

Thanks again and keep up the wonderful site:)
