National Book Awards, The 2017 Fiction Longlist

The longlist of ten titles for the National Book Awards in fiction was announced today.

Of the ten, eight of the books are by women. The L.A. Times notes this is “the first time since the National Book Foundation started using longlists in 2013 that women have appeared in such a majority.”

This is the culmination of longlist announcements. The longlists for nonfiction, poetry and young people’s literature are available on the National Book Foundation’s site.
