Giveaway: The Impostor's Daughter by Laurie Sandell



DESCRIPTION (taken from here):

Laurie Sandell grew up in awe (and sometimes in terror) of her larger-than-life father, who told jaw-dropping tales of a privileged childhood in Buenos Aires, academic triumphs, heroism during Vietnam, friendships with Kissinger and the Pope. As a young woman, Laurie unconsciously mirrors her dad, trying on several outsized personalities (Tokyo stripper, lesbian seductress, Ambien addict). Later, she lucks into the perfect job--interviewing celebrities for a top women's magazine. Growing up with her extraordinary father has given Laurie a knack for relating to the stars. But while researching an article on her dad's life, she makes an astonishing discovery: he's not the man he says he is--not even close. Now, Laurie begins to puzzle together three decades of lies and the splintered person that resulted from them--herself.

Anna over at Hachette has given me permission to give out 5 copies of each book to 5 random commenters.

I'm not sure whether this is tragic or a laugh-riot (perhaps a little of both), but I'm intrigued. Please count me in. Thank you!
