  1. I think this is the first year that I’d already read the Novel winner — almost certainly due to a recommendation I got here. Thanks to whoever it was.

    I’m glad that you liked it. I really enjoyed her The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, Touch, and Appearance — but I DNFed the new one, The End of the Day, less than halfway through. I thought that it was very disappointing — contrived and uninteresting. 😐
