Free (Kindle) Midnight Cowboy by James Leo Herlihy

Midnight Cowboy by James Leo Herlihy (US Kindle)

Quote:
Product Description

A gritty but compassionate novel about an ingenuous young man’s confrontation with the unpleasant realities of urban life, Midnight Cowboy is an under-appreciated classic of postwar American literature.

I don't know if it's the same storyline, but there was a movie by the same name in 1969.

Movie was based on this book (great movie, too). Thanks for the heads up.

If this is rosettabooks.com they don't seem to distribute from their site but distribute through places like Amazon etc.. yes?

If so - doesn't look like they publish for us Australians.

Thanks!

I believe all the Rosetta Books freebies have already been posted in separate posts. They are all for Kindle and they are:

Shoeless Joe
Midnight Cowboy
Red Alert
The Graduate
A Passage to India

But all of these are also offered free for non-Kindles from Copia if you sign up for a free account there. Check out this thread.

Many (or at least some) Rosettabooks are available from Kobo in Canada as well. No freebies that I can see but many titles priced in the $6-7 range for, I expect, properly formatted and corrected texts. Much of Kurt Vonnegut's work is showing for sale. Plus you'll find Ben Bova, Ian McEwan, Harry Kemelman, John Wyndham and others. Searching for "RosettaBooks" will generate the list.
