Giveaway: Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow

This week, I am doing several giveaways, scattered throughout the day. The first is a copy of Faïza Guène’s Kiffe Kiffe Tomorrow, a debut novel by a young French-Algerian author. It’s a coming-of-age story set in one of Paris’s infamous cités, and it has been praised by Sandra Cisneros (“a tale for anyone who has ever lived outside looking in”), and, uh, me (“moving and irreverent”). It’s also received quite a bit of attention, from the NYT to the SF Chronicle to Salon.

You know the drill: The first reader to email me with a request gets the book. Please use the subject line: “Kiffe Kiffe.” Please include your mailing address. Previous winners excluded.

Update: The winner is Beau G. from Chicago, Illinois. There will be another book given away later this morning. Good luck.
