National Book Awards’ 5 under 35 authors for 2014

September 30, 2014 § Leave a comment

The National Book Awards have chosen the 2014 5 under 35 authors.  It’s an interesting list, including one (Phil Klay) on this year’s longlist for Fiction:

Yelena Akhtiorskaya, Panic in a Suitcase

Alex Gilvarry, From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant

Phil Klay, Redeployment

Valeria Luiselli, Faces in the Crowd

Kirstin Valdez Quade, Night at the Fiestas:  Stories

An interesting mix.  The Akhtiorskaya and Klay are 2014 releases, the Luiselli is a 2014 translation of a 2013 original publication in Spanish, the Gilvarry came out in 2012, and Valdez Quade’s debut collection comes out in March 2015.  Looks like there’ll be more reading and reviewing for me in the next three months, it seems.
