The winner of this year’s PEN/Faulkner was announced this morning.

  • The Buddha in the Attic, by Julie Otsuka

The winner gets $15,000. I have this book on hand and have been meaning to read it since it was also a finalist for the National Book Award back in November. It’s short enough I just need to get to it.

Here are the other finalists, each of whom receive $5,000 (making it a good week for Don DeLillo and Steven Millhauser who also took home some money for The Story Prize).

  • Russell Banks for Lost Memory of Skin
  • Don DeLillo for The Angel Esmeralda: Nine Stories
  • Anita Desai for The Artist of Disappearance
  • Steven Millhauser for We Others: New and Selected Stories (my review here)

    I’m so glad to see this – I loved Otsuka’s book for its unusual voice.

    I am looking forward to looking up these stories. Thanks for blogging all this. Sooner or later I plan to investigate much of what is here. I have already followed up on several of your postings. Enjoy this blog.

    But just looking at this list I am struck by the fact that several of the winners are already quite famous. I would be interested to know if there was anonymity in the choices. I am remembering that Doris Lessing when she submitted a novel under a pseudonym, and it got roundly rejected.
