April 4, 2014 § Leave a comment

Somehow missed the shortlist announcement, but it is very cool to see that Karen Joy Fowler won this year’s PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction for her novel, We Are Completely Beside Ourselves, which was one of my favorite 2013 books.  I’ve read one of the other shortlisted titles and likely will read the others at some point in the future.

The other finalists:

Daniel Alarcón, At Night We Walk in Circles
Percival Everett, Percival Everett by Virgil RussellJoan Silber, Fools 
Valerie Trueblood, Search Party: Stories of Rescue
function DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url) { var object = document.getElementById(“cosymantecnisbfw”); if(null != object) { object.DOMContentLoaded(browserID, tabId, isTop, url);} }; function Nav(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, isBool, url) { var object = document.getElementById(“cosymantecnisbfw”); if(null != object) object.Nav(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, isBool, url); }; function NavigateComplete(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, url) { var object = document.getElementById(“cosymantecnisbfw”); if(null != object) object.NavigateComplete(BrowserID, TabID, isTop, url); } function Submit(browserID, tabID, target, url) { var object = document.getElementById(“cosymantecnisbfw”); if(null != object) object.Submit(browserID, tabID, target, url); };
