Tonight the National Book Award Winner will be announced …

I am encouraging you all to send some psychic love to encourage the judges to choose JAYNE ANNE PHILLIPS, for her beautifully crafted LARK AND TERMITE.  I hope she gets the award, but it will only be a validation of what we all know anyway: Jayne Anne has a gift for language that’s rare in this universe, and the stories she dips into are rich and memorable as the birthday cakes Lark bakes in antediluvial West Virginia.  We all just want a taste.

I thought this would be a nice time to have an incomplete retrospective of Jayne Anne coverage on the blog this year; it’s impressive just to see all the recognition she has received in the last few months:
