What-are-you-reading-Wednesday: National Book Awards

October 7, 2009

By Kristen Fuhs Wells, communications director at the Indiana Humanities Council

I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t read any of the books up for the 60th National Book Awards, which are six National Book Award-Winning Fiction books from 1950-2008. But if you have, go to www.nbafictionpoll.org to vote for your favorite. It’s the first time the vote has been opened up to the public in the award’s history.

The nominees are:
The Stories of John Cheever, John Cheever
Invisible Man, Ralph Ellison
Collected Stories of William Faulkner, William Faulkner
The Complete Stories of Flannery O’Connor, Flannery O’Connor
Gravity’s Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon
The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty, Eudora Welty

Which one should be tops on my list?
