Burning Question

burn.jpgWhat’s the one book that burned bridges during a disastrous date or failed relationship?

Everybody has a story: the time your geeky speech about private detective novels fizzled the romantic flame or the time your passionate defense of Anais Nin sparked a fiery argument.

Today, that bad memory can win you a new book. The first 50 readers to email GalleyCat with the title of the book that torched their romances will win a free copy of An Arsonist’s Guide to Writers’ Homes in New England–a spiffy copy from Algonquin Books.

Just include your mailing address in the email, and GalleyCat will take care of the rest. We’ll post again when the contest is closed. Feel free to share the story of your book-doomed romance, GalleyCat will reprint our favorites in an angst-ridden, enlightening post.
