2013 National Book Award Longlist.

A few days late: the 2013 National Book Award fiction longlist was announced. Titles include a couple I have reviewed this year:

Funny enough, both the Lahiri and the Kushner are sitting in my pile of to-be-reviewed books; otherwise I’m not familiar with the rest. I’m anxious to get to them—in the meantime I have finished Juan Gabriel Vasquez’s excellent newest novel, and am working through Jonathan Lethem’s Dissident Gardens right now.
