TT: Excuse me for being slightly staggered
I woke up this morning, logged on, and discovered that Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington made the National Book Awards longlist for nonfiction. This is the first time that any book of mine has received anything like that kind of recognition--and of the ten books on the list, Duke is the only one about the arts.
The finalists will be announced on October 16. To find out more about the nonfiction award, including the names of the other books on the list, go here.
