February Giveaway: Two Viragos and a DESSIE

Marcella Mrs. Humphry WardI know that many of you like Viragos. I have a nice collection, but some I’ll never read again.

Not the cover: mine is a green Virago.

So I am giving away Mrs. Humphry Ward’s Marcella (which I loved and wrote about here) and Elaine Dundy’s The Dud Avocado about an American woman in Paris (many like this book, but I didn’t particularly;  it is also available in an NYRB edition).

I am also giving away D. E. Stevenson’s Miss Buncle, Married, a sequel to Miss Buncle’s Book.  This is a much-read large-print edition (read by a couple of generations, I would guess), with a slightly crooked spine, but it is a good reading copy. And  I know there are lots of Stevenson fans out there.

I can’t send them to the UK, alas, but the U.S. and Canada, yes.

Leave a comment if you’d like one of these.  Yes, the same people can win again and again.

I need more space for more books!

  1. Well, if you loved Marcella, my fellow radical, maybe I would, too. But only if no one else wants it. I don’t want to be piggish. Why don’t I just come to [the Midwest] and help you clean up your shelves?

  2. Heavens, you can have the Marcella! Yes, stop by in the middle of the country any time. Nobody wants my books when I drop them off at the Little Free Library.:)

    I really should buy a dilapidated house downtown and open a bookstore and live above it!
