National Book Award 2015 Nominees: Fiction

The longlist for the 2015 National Book Award nominees was released today and though there were a lot of familiar faces to be found (Clegg, Pearlman, Hanagihara) we were happy to see some surprises as well.  Who could have predicted the appearance of Karen E. Bender’s Refund?  Or the inclusion of Welcome to Braggsville by T. Geronimo Johnson?  Haven’t read them?  Well here’s your chance.  Reserve your own copies by clicking on the links and covers below:

  1. I’m excited about the long list this year because it looks like a good mix. I’ve read A Little Life and Mislaid (not a fan of the latter) and wasn’t surprised to see either on the list. I think the big surprises for me were The Turner House, Honeydew, Refund, and A Cure for Suicide. The others were already getting buzz so I wasn’t surprised but those four were unexpected in a good way.
