Giveaway: The Turkish Lover

This week, I’m giving away a copy of Esmeralda Santiago’s The Turkish Lover. It’s a memoir of her seven-year relationship with Turkish filmmaker Ulvi Dogan, a candid account of the tumultuous and abusive times they spent together, traveling from Florida, through New York, to Boston, where Santiago finally settled down and started attending college. The book was released to very good reviews last fall, and is now coming out in paperback. Here’s how it works: First person to email me at llalami at yahoo dot com with the subject line ‘The Turkish Lover’ gets the book. Previous winners excluded, obviously.

Update: The winner is Suzanne K.
