More on the NBCC Awards
Posted by: Keir Graff

I just posted Donna Seaman’s first-person report on the NBCC Awards on Booklist Online (“Both a Literary Marathon and a Talent Show: A Report from the National Book Critics Circle Awards“). You can tell she’s a book critic because, after dropping this tantalizing tidbit,¬†she neglects to tell us what Dave Eggers was actually¬†wearing:

In another arresting appearance, a noticeably nervous Dave Eggers took the stage with a poised and delighted Valentino Achak Deng, the subject (and, some might argue, coauthor) of Eggers’ novel What is the What. Eggers seemed particularly chagrined by the fact that he and Deng had inadvertently dressed exactly alike.

As a former member of the NBCC board of directors, Donna has a unique perspective on the goings-on. Check it out!
