Book #Giveaway: Admission by Jean Hanff Korelitz

Monday, March 18, 2013 Posted by Dina N

The movie adaption of Jean Hanff Korelitz’s Admission is coming to theaters on March 22. Directed by Oscar-nominated Paul Weitz, the film is based on Korelitz’s 2009 novel. The cast includes Tina Fey, Paul Rudd, Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn, and Lily Tomlin.

I plan to see the movie, and of course, read the book. The movie tie-in edition came out in January. I find the book synopsis very intriguing (check it out below), and the cast of the movie includes some of my favorite actors.

Book Description
"Admissions. Admission. Aren't there two sides to the word? And two opposing sides... It's what we let in, but it's also what we let out." 

For years, 38-year-old Portia Nathan has avoided the past, hiding behind her busy (and sometimes punishing) career as a Princeton University admissions officer and her dependable domestic life. Her reluctance to confront the truth is suddenly overwhelmed by the resurfacing of a life-altering decision, and Portia is faced with an extraordinary test. Just as thousands of the nation's brightest students await her decision regarding their academic admission, so too must Portia decide whether to make her own ultimate admission.

Admission is at once a fascinating look at the complex college admissions process and an emotional examination of what happens when the secrets of the past return and shake a woman's life to its core.

The Giveaway
One lucky U.S. reader will win a copy of the movie-tie-in edition of Admission.
