Giveaway - The Breaking of Eggs by Jim Powell

The Breaking of Eggs: A NovelThe Breaking of Eggs: A Novel
Author:  Jim Powell
Publisher: Penguin
Publication Date:  July 27, 2010

A debut novel unwinds the tangle of 20th-century history with wit, humor, and humanity.

Sixty-one-year-old Feliks is a naturalized Frenchman, a displaced Pole and former Communist --- and a curmudgeon --- who has made his living writing a yearly travel guide to the countries behind the Iron Curtain. In 1991, with the Curtain now fallen, Feliks finds his beliefs beginning to crumble around him. When a rapacious American publisher offers to buy out his life's work, Feliks must travel to the country he has long despised, and so begins the wry and moving tale of a man who awakens from self-imposed isolation into a changed world he must get to know all over again. So unfolds a story of family, war, politics, a second chance at love, and one man's quest for himself.

Should be an interesting book. Many of us forget or don't know what a very different world we live in from just 20 or 30 years ago. For those active and involved in their world, the transition isn't always easy.
