The National Book Foundation

The finalists for America's National Book Award were announced yesterday. These are the shortlisted fiction titles (because this is the category that interests me most) with links to further information about book and author :
Bonnie Jo Campbell - American Salvage
Colum McCann - Let the Great World Spin
Daniyal Mueenuddin - In Other Rooms, Other Wonders
Jayne Anne Phillips - Lark and Termite
Marcel Theroux - Far North

Do check out the other nominees in the Non-Fiction, Young People's and Poetry categories on the National Book Foundation's website.

More about this year's nominations at Jacket Copy, and I will add as postscripts any other interesting links of the topic I come across.
