I love, love, love, love the National Book Awards. Every year I feel like NBA has its finger on my pulse in terms of fiction I'm going to love. I have not read all the nominees but I'm looking forward to reading several of them. Jennifer Egan, of course, whose Views from the Goon Squad was a huge influence on my own book, Jesmyn Ward, Lisa Ko, and Charmaine Craig's book Miss Burma which is another Grove title.
Super congrats to all!
