Self-Published Novel Wins $25,000 PEN Award
Public defender and first-time novelist Sergio de la Pava published A Naked Singularity himself after repeated rejections from publishing houses. "The book slowly generated buzz on blogs before being picked up by the University of Chicago Press, a distinguished publisher not known for its contemporary fiction. Writing for Slate, Paul Ford called it 'the sort of book you write if you're not sure anyone will ever let you write another one'." The New York Times 08/14/13
