Big congratulations to Karen Joy Fowler, author of my favorite novel from last year, for winning the PEN/Faulkner award! A well-deserved recognition for an outstanding book. Here’s the Washington Post’s article on the award, which contains plot spoilers. But eventually this spoiler is going to reach you anyway. If you want to preserve your reading experience and haven’t gotten a copy yet, go! Now! Read it! It’s out in paperback! What are you waiting for?
