nba_thThe finalists for the 2009 National Book Awards have been announced and I haven’t heard of any of these books, save for Colum McCann’s (it’s supposed to be very very good, great even!) 

For fiction, they are: Bonnie Jo Campbell, American Salvage; Colum McCann, Let the Great World Spin; Daniyal Mueenuddin, In Other Rooms, Other Wonders; Jayne Anne Phillips, Lark and Termite; and Marcel Theroux, Far North. The winner will be announced at a ceremony on November 18. [via]
