The National Book Critics Circle have announced the list of award winners for publishing year 2013.
Frank Bidart, “Metaphysical Dog” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
Franco Moretti, “Distant Reading” (Verso)
Amy Wilentz, “Farewell, Fred Voodoo: A Letter From Haiti” (Simon & Schuster)
Leo Damrosch, “Jonathan Swift: His Life and His World” (Yale University Press)
Sheri Fink, “Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital” (Crown)
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, “Americanah” (Knopf)
I've been planning to read Americanah and Five Days at Memorial, so this doesn't really my forthcoming reading, but I love awards and award lists. Because, somehow, my reading list isn't nearly long enough yet.
