Los Angeles Times Book Prize Nominees
Posted by: Keir Graff

Nominees for the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes have been announced. I don’t have time to list or link them all, so I’ll just do the fiction:

Fiction

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Díaz (Riverhead)

Be Near Me, by Andrew O’Hagan (Harcourt)

Last Night at the Lobster, by Stewart O’Nan (Viking)

Out Stealing Horses, by Per Petterson (Graywolf)

The Shadow Catcher, by Marianne Wiggins (Simon & Schuster)

Booklist reviewers liked these books, too.

Also worth noting is the inclusion of Ishmael Beah’s A Long Way Gone–not surprising, because it’s showing up on a lot of lists, but the category is interesting: Current Interest, not Biography. Clever people there at the Times.
