Honoring the Honored
Posted by: Keir Graff

Still catching up. 

The indefatigable award-givers at PEN have inaugurated the PEN/Borders Literary Award, for “a truly distinguished American writer whose critically acclaimed work helps us to understand the human condition in original and powerful ways.” I know, I know: with criteria as specific as that, you’re probably wondering who on earth they could find to give it to.

Fortunately, they found someone: Gore Vidal. (“Gore Vidal to receive PEN/Borders prize,” AP.)

If you’re already a highly¬†honored author, I like your odds of receiving even more honors in 2007.
