I managed to miss the announcement and it took a side note on Omnivoracious to bring this to my attention, but the winner of the PEN / Faulkner Award for Fiction was announced.
I posted the list of nominees a month ago.
The winner: War Dances, by Sherman Alexie.
I'll be checking that one out soon.
I'll also be checking out some of the another nominees. I've rather enjoyed Barbara Kingsolver's novels and I'm excited for The Lacuna.
