Family LifeThis year’s winner of the Folio Prize is:

  • Family Life, by Akhil Sharma

This beat out a strong list of books (see the finalists here), and we need to get a review up.

Sharma is an author I know only through a few short stories published in The New Yorker (“We Didn’t Like Him,” thoughts here; and “A Mistake,” thoughts here). I enjoyed each of them. Family Life is his second novel, following An Obedient Father from 2000, which won the PEN/Hemingway Award.

You can read a review of Family Life by Kim at Reading Matters here.
