National Book Critics Circle Award Finalists Announced!

The short list is out for the National Book Critics Circle Award.  Click here to read the entire article in the LA Times.

The fiction finalists are:

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah (Knopf) A LITERARY MASTERS SELECTION: OCTOBER 2013

Alice McDermott, Someone (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)

Javier Marías, The Infatuations, translated by Margaret Jull Costa (Knopf)

Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being (Viking)

Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch (Little, Brown)

As you know, Americanah was Literary Masters’ October book; everyone loved it and we had fantastic discussions.  (For more on Literary Masters, click on link to the right of where you are now reading.)  I am currently reading The Goldfinch–not loving it as much as I thought I would (expectations, expectations) but it’s early days yet.  This is one long book.

I want to read the others…

The winner will be announced in March!
