In any case, I'm offering my hardback copy up for grabs as a new contest, ending Sept 30, 2010. For this contest, you must have a US mailing address, and be a follower. In addition, I'm making a bit of a quiz in order to win. Enter via comment BUT then answer the quiz in an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All accurate responses will go into the drawing for the hardback finished copy of Parrot & Olivier.
Solve the Six degrees of Peter Carey:
Explain the links between author Peter Carey and the book Persuasion by Jane Austen. You might solve it in less than six degrees...just explain in your email how you connected the two. Remember: comment AND email to enter.
Note: The Extraordinary Renditions contest is ongoing, a separate entry, and ends 9/15/10.
