NOVEMBER 19, 2010
National Book Award Winners ~ 2010
In case you haven't heard, The National Books Award Winners for 2010 were announced this past week. Like any good race horse, Jaimy Gordon's Lord of Misrule, just released this week, came out of nowhere to win the top prize in fiction. Beating all odds, McPherson, an independent publisher, picked a true winner.

The novel features, Lord of Misrule, a rundown black racehorse, who doesn't realize he's a long shot and gives his all.

We were caught by surprise like many others and just ordered our copy yesterday.

Be the first to reserve Lord of Misrule here.

Other 2010 winners:

Nonfiction:  Just Kids/Patti Smith
Poetry:  Lighthearted/Terrance Hayes
Young Adult Literature: Mockingbird/Kathryn Erskine

Listen to the acceptance speeches and author interviews on The National Book Award website.
