Sign up for the Newsdesk newsletter to enter to win
It should come as no surprise to regular Chronicle readers that we're big fans of books. So it seems completely sensible to us that those little bound volumes of pulp make good reader rewards: in this case, Rachel Maddow's just-published Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, an "epic and darkly farcical" look (according to New York Magazine's Frank Rich) at the nation's transition into one "weirdly at peace with perpetual war." Simply sign up for our Newsdesk newsletter – a once-a-week collection of our latest efforts, culled for your convenience by yours truly – to enter to win a copy signed by Maddow, and we'll select a winner on Friday, April 13. Only one lucky subscriber will take home the prize, but we like to think you're all winning a little inbox augmentation every Thursday morning. See austinchronicle.com/contests for complete details.
