Composed, last week's Friday Freebie.
This week's giveaway is Frederick Reuss' new novel A Geography of Secrets, a sharp, incisive account of two men trying to come to grips with their murky pasts and the shadowy secrets of their present lives. Reuss, the author of The Wasties and Mohr, is smart in all the right places and funny when he needs to be.
Library Journal called it "An understated but masterly work for fans of cosmopolitan, contemplative, contemporary prose."
My review of A Geography of Secrets will be posted at The Barnes and Noble Review in the near future.
If you'd like to get lost in Reuss' novel, all you have to do is answer this question:
