NBA Fiction Winner Colum McCann on Grace

Novelist Colum McCann won the National Book Award for Fiction last night for “Let the Great World Spin.” “Stories are the purest form of engagement,” he explained in his acceptance speech. “We have to take this honor as a challenge.”

In this exclusive GalleyCat interview, McCann talks about New York City, the recession, and grace. We also got the author’s take on Stephenie Meyer‘s bestselling Twilight Saga.

Last night Galleycat covered the 2009 National Book Awards, a combination of the Academy Awards ceremony, a fairytale ball, and a high school prom for writers.
