I’ve already read three of the finalists here and I should finish the others in the next week or so. If I get the chance to review them before the winner is announced, I’ll either post them on Gogol’s Overcoat or here, maybe as a delayed mirror of the post there.
Very solid list from what I’ve read so far, especially Otsuka’s book, which I reviewed very positively when it was a finalist for the 2011 National Book Award in Fiction.
