So you've devoured the February print edition of BookPage. Guess what? Each month, we have plenty more features and reviews on our Web Exclusives page. And this week, you could win four books that were recently featured as web exclusives.


Wild Thing by Josh Bazell: "Casually violent and consistently hilarious, sequel Wild Thing doesn't make former hit man turned doctor Brnwa's life any easier. He has been hired as a bodyguard to paleontologist (and sexual demigoddess) Dr. Violet Hurst, and they're headed into the Boundary Waters to investigate an urban legend on a killing spree."

The Tender Hour of Twilight by Richard Seaver. "Proving to be as fine a writer as he was an editor, Seaver recounts many charming anecdotes about his personal and professional lives—which, really, were inextricably linked."

The Rook by Daniel O'Malley: "It requires real skill to weave together threads from various sources in a manner that is both coherent and enjoyable, especially when dealing with imaginative territory that has been virtually strip-mined by writers in the last few decades."

Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katharine Boo. "Brace yourself: This is an unsparing view of a world of crushing poverty, disease, physical brutality and corruption. But, of course, actual human beings with dreams and ambitions live in this awful place, and Boo centers her story on about a dozen compelling characters who are trying to improve their circumstances."
