Random House swept the awards this year with 4 out of the 6 categories. (Knopf and Doubleday are part of Random House.) Right now, the Inkwell has The Road, The Race Beat, The Most Famous Man in America, and The Looming Tower in stock, but they won't last long. Any time a major award is announced the titles sell out, and it generally takes three weeks for them to be reprinted. We are particularly pleased that David Lindsey-Abaire won for Rabbit Hole since we brought a group tour to see the play in Boston at the Huntington Theatre in December.
The other finalists for Fiction were Alice McDermott for After This and Richard Powers for The Echo Maker. To view the other category finalists click this link.
