Quills Nominees Announced

Nominees for the Quills have been announced and, according to PW, include Nick Hornby’s A Long Way Home. We assume Hornby could only be disappointed by the committee’s decision to overlook his non-imaginary novel, A Long Way Down.

Other nominees in the general fiction category include Gilead by Marilynne Robinson; The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd; The Plot Against America by Philip Roth; and Zorro by Isabel Allende. Biography/memoir nominees include Chronicles: Volume One by Bob Dylan; The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls; His Excellency: George Washington by Joseph Ellis; Thinking: True Stories by Augusten Burroughs; and Will in the World: How Shakespeare Became Shakespeare by Stephen Greenblatt.
