Free Stuff Alert: “My First Kafka” by Matthue Roth

By at 11:47 am

my first kafkaYou know Franz Kafka? The author of The Metamorphosisthe story of a man who turns into a giant bug? Well, now your kids can know him, too.

Kveller contributor and author Matthue Roth has a new children’s book out that we’re super excited about. My First Kafka retells three Kafka stories, including The Metamorphosis, but this time with a much younger audience in mind. Considering the subject matter–runaway children who meet up with monsters; a giant talking bug; a secret world of mouse-people–it’s no wonder why Roth decided to bring these quirky stories to younger readers. To learn more about My First Kafka, check out today’s feature on Jewniverse (which if you haven’t been reading already, you really must).

So now let’s get to the good part: we’ve got five copies of My First Kafka to giveaway to five lucky readers. To enter, fill out the form below and we’ll choose a winner next Wednesday, July 3rd.

Kveller Book Club: Win a Copy of The Mothers

By at 1:50 pm

the mothers by jennifer gilmore

This month, the Kveller Book Club is reading The Mothers by Jennifer Gilmore. Learn more about the book below and then enter our giveaway to win a copy.

Jennifer Gilmore’s book The Mothers is not a memoir. Yes, Gilmore herself did go through the excruciating journey into attempted adoption covered by the novel, but this is not her story. The story she has written, however a fictional account, is deep, resonant, and powerfully real.

I’m a big reader, but it is rare, for me, that a book can so thoroughly sink me into the world of someone else’s circumstances and mind as The Mothers did. Gilmore is terrific at making her characters palpably real, warts and all. Jessie, a woman looking to adopt a child with her husband, Ramon, after a prolonged fertility struggle, is “prickly,” to be charitable. At times, she can be a bitch on wheels, whether to her husband, her parents, her friends, or to herself. Read the rest of this entry →
