Giovanni's Room Sweepstakes Official Rules

“Central to Giovanni’s Room for me is its context—its place in time—Paris (ironically ‘the city of love’) in the 1950s, and how the landscape of desire and queer ache that the characters experience are mirrored and refracted by the physical landscape of bohemian Paris itself—winding side streets, old buildings, night shadows and stones. I also wanted it to look like it’s a mass-market paperback from the 1950s, one I might have in my back pocket if I were wandering around looking for love and trouble in Paris.” —Rex Leonowicz (Instagram: @rexylafemme)
