Giveaway - Lions at Lamb House; Edwin Yoder - Europa Edition

I've been so hooked on the quality of books published by Europa, that I went a bit overboard and purchased one title twice, so my foolishness calls for a giveaway.  If interested, please leave a comment with a way to contact you should you win.  Entries will be accepted until Sunday (just 3 days). Winner will be announced on  Sunday evening.

Edwin M Yoder Jr

Lions at Lamb House imagines what happens when an Austrian psychiatrist responds to the urgent request of a Boston colleague. The colleague, who fears his brother’s intention to rewrite his early novels may be the sign of debilitating neuroses, urges the Austrian psychiatrist to visit and evaluate his brother at home in the south of England. The time is 1908. The Austrian is Sigmund Freud. The Bostonian is William James and the novelist is his brother Henry. What comes of Freud’s ten-day visit to Lamb House is fiction of a high order, at once artful and entertaining.

  1. I'm getting Europa obsessed myself. I have a plan to combine my What's in a Name 5 and Europa Challenges for next year -- I was planning on using this for my "house" entry! So I would be happy to win. Thanks for the lovely giveaway. colreads@gmail.com
    (I hope this didn't post twice, but I am having trouble with blogger comments today, sorry!)

  3. I found Europa Editions a year or so ago when I stumbled across one while browsing at the library. I was very pleased with the translation and the quality. I'm considering joining the Europa Challenge at the Espresso level to give me a little push to seek out more of their books.

  16. This sounds really interesting! I'm currently reading What Alice Knew, which features Henry and William James as main characters and it is a good read so far. Count me in for the giveaway and thanks!

  17. Love the title and cover of this book! Have been coveting Europa editions for some time now, ever since coming across The Elegance of The Hedgehog. Having recently bought a biography on Henry James (A Ring of Conspirators), would like to read more about the writer from another angle.
    Thanks for the generous offer!

  19. I never would have guessed that was what the book was about from the title! It makes me wonder how it all plays into the plot.
