The finalists for the National Book Awards are finally out. The women didn’t make out too badly this year. Interestingly, two of the five books nominated were by women (Jayne Anne Phillips’ Lark and Termite and Bonnie Jo Campbell’s American Salvage), and two of the five fiction judges are also women (Jennifer Egan and Lydia Millet).
Nonfiction has one female nominee out of five and two female judges, while poetry logged a whopping three female nominees and two out of four female judges.
What do you think of the nominees? Any favorites?more »
