Giveaway: Friends Like These (9/16) CLOSED

Tuesday, September 01, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Have you seen Yes Man, that movie where Jim Carrey's character had to say yes to everything for a year? I loved this story! I just found out that there is a book behind the movie - Yes Man by Danny Wallace is on my to-read list now. In the meantime, I am pleased to let you know that Danny Wallace's new autobiographical book, Friends Like These, is coming out this month. Thanks to its publisher, Hachette Book Group, I received a review copy - stay tuned for my thoughts on the book! And now five of you can win Friends Like These - read on!

Book Description
Danny Wallace has friends. He has a wife and goes to brunch, and his new house has a couch with throw pillows. But as he nears 30, he can't help wondering about his best childhood friends, whose names he finds in a long-forgotten address book. Where are they now - and where, really, is he?

Acting on an impulse we've all had at least once, he travels from London to Berlin, Tokyo, Australia, and California, risking rejection and ridicule to show up on his old pals' doorsteps. Memories of his 1980s childhood-from Michael Jackson to Ghostbusters-overwhelm him as he meets former buddies who have blossomed into rappers and ninjas, time-traveling pioneers, mediocre restaurant managers, and even Fijian royalty.

Danny's attempt to re-befriend them all gives remarkable new resonance to the age-old mantra, "friends forever!"

Author Bio
Danny Wallace is the author of The Yes Man, now a film starring Jim Carrey. He has hosted various television shows and starred in BBC documentaries. Currently, he has a weekly radio show on XFM in London, and three of his books have been bestsellers in the UK.
