2020 National Book Critics Circle Award Winners!

The awards ceremony may have been canceled, (thanks, Coronavirus!) but the awards must go on…

From the Washington Post:

The National Book Critics Circle was forced to cancel last night’s awards ceremony. But the winners were announced — along with plans to celebrate them sometime this fall:

  • Autobiography “Know My Name,” by Chanel Miller (review).
  • Biography “The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth,” by Josh Levin (review).
  • Criticism “Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Social Upheaval,” by Saidiya Hartman.
  • Fiction “Everything Inside: Stories,” by Edwidge Danticat.
  • Nonfiction “Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland,” by Patrick Radden Keefe (review).
  • Poetry “Magical Negro,” by Morgan Parker (review).
