Joan Didion Brings Home the Prize

Joan Didion won the National Book Award in non-fiction for The Year of Magical Thinking on Wednesday night. And in a move that will surely make this guy and this guy happy, William T. Vollman won the award for his 800-page novel Europe Central.

W.S. Merwin won the poetry prize for his collection, Migration, and Jeanne Birdsall won in the youth fiction category for The Penderwicks.
