National Book Award Winners
Posted by: Keir Graff

The National Book Award winners were announced last night, at a gala, star-studded ceremony in—where, else?—New York. Once the cheering had died down, the smoke from the fireworks had cleared, and the rowdy hooligans had been dispersed by baton-wielding mounted police (some literary groupies just don’t take it very well when the authors whose names are tattooed across their knuckles don’t bring home the trophy), four books were left standing, held aloft by a triumphant quartet of authors—who, in a display of outstanding sportsmanship, traded their game-worn jerseys on the spot.
