So, according from twitterfeeds from the National Book awards and our own prof, Tayari Jones, Colum McCann won for Fiction. McCann is a great reader (I heard him once), but I’m happy that we have Jayne Anne. For more coverage of the National Book Awards, I suggest going to Tayari’s blog, who I’m sure will have an account of her bird’s eye view in the a.m.
