TT: Close enough for jazz
The National Book Foundation announced the 2013 National Book Award finalists this morning. As I recently predicted, Duke didn't make the cut, but that's fine with me. The list of books that were shortlisted today for the nonfiction award is more than enticing enough as is, and I'm proud to have been one of the ten semi-finalists.
To my five colleagues who are now in contention for the big prize, I wish you all the very best of luck.
