2106 National Book Award Longlist

National Book Foundation, Presenter of the National Book AwardsWhat a great list this year. Handicappers probably have Colson Whitehead as a lock for The Underground Railroad. If I had a vote I might cast it for Lydia Millett’s deeply intelligent, subversive and unnerving novel Sweet Lamb of Heaven… That is if two of the best novels Harper published this year weren’t also on the list. Complete list here.

On the kids’ side, I was happy to see Sara Pennypacker’s Pax make the list. It’s one for the ages and deserves to win every everything this year.

  • Pax (9780062377012) by Sara Pennypacker. $16.99 hardcover.
