Giveaway - Sway by Zachary Lazar...

February 23, 2009
*** THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!! ***
Time for another giveaway! I have 5 copies of Sway (paperback) by Zachary Lazar, courtesy of Hachette Book Group.

Three dramatic and emblematic stories intertwine in Zachary Lazar's extraordinary new novel, SWAY--the early days of the Rolling Stones, including the romantic triangle of Brian Jones, Anita Pallenberg, and Keith Richards; the life of avant-garde filmmaker Kenneth Anger; and the community of Charles Manson and his followers.

Lazar illuminates an hour in American history when rapture found its roots in idolatrous figures and led to unprovoked and inexplicable violence. Connecting all the stories in this novel is Bobby Beausoleil, a beautiful California boy who appeared in an Anger film and eventually joined the Manson "family."

With great artistry, Lazar weaves scenes from these real lives together into a true but heightened reality, making superstars human, giving demons reality, and restoring mythic events to the scale of daily life.

I would LOVE to win this book! My sister is a throwback from the 60's and I'd like to share it with her. It would have been cool to jam with the Stones. I was in a band so I can relate to all the drama. I've spent a good chunk of my time studing serial killers and Manson is high on my list. Music and Manson. Two of my favorite subjects!
