"Seeing that many members of your book group have enjoyed Edmund de Waal's The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss, Picador USA, his paperback publisher, has very generously offered to give away 10 copies of his grandmother's new novel, The Exiles Return: A Novel, a posthumously discovered masterwork of European fiction, set in the ashes of post-World War II Vienna.

While researching The Hare With Amber Eyes: A Family's Century of Art and Loss, Edmund de Waal found his grandmother’s files packed with yellowing letters from Rainier Marie Rilke and the pages of five novels, two in German and three in English, all written in exile and unpublished during her lifetime. The Exiles Return: A Novel is Elisabeth’s only autobiographical novel, a powerful story of five exiles returning home after fleeing Hitler’s deadly reign.

We will mail out copies to the first ten people who respond to this thread."

NOTE: Due to publishing rights, this offer is only open to residents of the US and Canada

I will be opening a discussion thread in April in which anyone with this book may participate.
