US Authors Dominate Frank O'Connor

Well, none of our local chaps made it to the shortlist of the Frank O'Connor this year. Instead, American writers dominate the list this time round, taking five of the six slots and demonstrating the health of the form in the US despite dire prognostications. (The only non-American author is David Constantine who is British.)

Here's the list for you to check out, and there looks to be much good stuff here, so do check out the links :

If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This by Robin Black
Mattaponi Queen by Belle Boggs
Wild Child by T.C. Boyle
Burning Bright by Ron Rash
What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us Laura van den Berg's
The Shieling by David Constantine
