I am thrilled to offer one lucky reader a free box of world literature, courtesy of the lovely, sophisticated Boxwalla.
Boxwalla is a relatively new subscription box service that quickly caught my attention and trust. Their mission is to help you “discover and experience new things” in the form of four types of subscription boxes: Beauty, Books, Film, and Food. With the Book Box in particular, their goal is to help readers experience the great, living authors from around the globe who have not yet (but may some day) win the Nobel Prize for Literature. I believe in that! What more, I believe in their choices so far!
For example, here is their December Book Box, featuring Ngugi wa Thiong’o, César Aira, and Svetlana Alexievich (they’d chosen the book before she won last year’s Nobel Prize).
February’s box featured three more books I personally recommend from Javier Marías, Minae Mizumura, and Anne Carson.
April’s box featured three authors I’ve read — Jon Fosse, Dubravka Ugresic, and Elias Khoury — but with books I’d yet to read but had always been meaning to get to.
And now, for the box one lucky reader will win. The exceptional June box, my favorite yet.
This box contains Péter Nádas’s A Book of Memories, Cees Notteboom’s Lost Paradise, and Nawal El Saadawi’s Woman at Point Zero. I can’t wait to see who wins!
Also, for those of you interested in getting the August box, I can’t tell you what’s in it (because I don’t know!), but you can reserve your copy by visiting this page. Though it says you need to reserve your copy by July 20, I was told they’d keep this open until July 25, so get to it!
So, please enter using the form below. You — no matter where you live on this earth — can enter once per day while this giveaway is open. I’m closing entries on the morning of Thursday, July 21, at 8:00 mountain standard time. Good luck!
