I saw an award announcement this morning.

The Center for Fiction announced seven novels nominated for its annual First Novel Prize.

Four of the seven are books by AOC!

After the Parade by Lori Ostlund (Scribner)
Against the Country by Ben Metcalf (Random House)
Bright Lines by Tanwi Nandini Islam (Penguin)
The Fishermen by Chigozie Obioma (Little, Brown)
The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Grove Press)
The Turner House by Angela Flournoy (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
The Unfortunates by Sophie McManus (Farrar, Straus)


In the UK, the James Tait Black award went to Zia Haider Rahman for his first novel, In the Light of What We Know: A Novel
