Courtesy of Circumspect Press, this week I'm giving away two paperback copies of Kergan Edwards-Stout's critically acclaimed debut novel, Songs for the New Depression, which is currently a finalist for the 2011 Indie Lit Awards.
The Advocate has raved that the book "boasts the kind of dark humor that made Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors) a household name" as it tells the story of Gabe Travers, who - now almost 40 and dying from AIDS - finally begins to peel back the layers of his life and tackle his demons with a little help from the music of the Divine Miss M and his mother's new wife, a country music-loving priest.
To learn more about Kergan, go to kerganedwards-stout.com. You can also follow him on Twitter and Facebook (and his photo is by Scott Council Photography).
