The finalists for the 2012 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction have been announced (here). The winner will be named on March 26.

  • Lost Memory of Skin, by Russell Banks
  • The Angel Esmeralda: Nine Stories, by Don DeLillo
  • The Artist of Disappearance, by Anita Desai
  • We Others: New and Selected Stories, by Steven Millhauser
  • The Buddha in the Attic, by Julie Otsuka

The only one I’ve read is We Others, and I fully endorse it (my review here). I’m happy to see two of the finalists are short story collections.
