I told you that I just love this time of year! Crisp mornings, sunny and warm afternoons, the Nobel Prize, the Man Booker, and now the National Book Award has released its list of finalists! Click here for all the info; I mainly pay attention, as you know, to the fiction category:
The Flamethrowers by Rachel Kushner
The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri
The Good Lord Bird by James McBride
Bleeding Edge by Thomas Pynchon
Tenth of December by George Saunders
As you also know, this season Literary Masters book groups and salons are reading Rachel Kushner’s previous novel Telex from Cuba and The Lowland by Lahiri.
Have you read any of these books? Your thoughts?
