I am at home obsessively refreshing my twitter feed as sarahw live-tweets from the National Book Award presentation ceremony. So far, the winners are:
Young People’s Fiction: Judy Bundell
Poetry: Mark Doty
Non-Fiction: Annette Gordon Reed (and it’s her birthday today!)
And I just found out that Peter Metthiessen has won the fiction prize for the revised version of three books he wrote and published years ago. Expect the blogosphere to explode tomorrow morning.
In the meantime, I need to get a life.
