Last night, writer Adam Levin was named the winner of this year’s New York Public Library’s Young Lions Fiction Award for The Instructions. The award includes $10,000 in prize money.
Levin’s 1,000-page title was released in November 2010. The image embedded above showcases the book’s three different covers. McSweeney’s will publish his short story collection, Hot Pink, later this year.
Library Lion Ethan Hawke hosted last night’s ceremony. Levin’s fellow nominees included John Brandon‘s Citrus County, Patricia Engel Vida, Suzanne Rivecca‘s Death is Not an Option, and Teddy Wayne‘s Kapitoil. (via Doree Shafrir)
