Another giveaway: Luis Sepulveda's The Shadow of What We Were

Since the last contest was international, this one is for US members only.  It is for Luis Sepulveda's award winning title The Shadow of What We Were, from Europa Editions (somehow they sent me two!).  It won the 2009 Premio Primavera for Spanish Literature award.  This translation has a gorgeous cover and is from one of Chile's most noted authors.

Rules are simple.  Be a follower, leave a comment WITH a way to contact you.  Email, or GFC if it's set up to show an email.  You must respond to my notification email within 48 hours.  Random selection on February 6 of the winner.

Thanks to Europa Editions for the copy.  My review for it is upcoming.


  1. This sounds like such a good book! I'm fond of Sepulveda, and Chilean literature in general. I've also heard good things about the translation that Europa puts out. I'm going to have to get in touch with them.
