Announcing the Winners of the National Book Critics Circle Awards 2013

Last May, in his Best of the Month review for Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, our own Neal Thompson said author Ben Fountain was "a writer worth every accolade about to come his way," and appears that that prediction has come true. In addition to being a finalist in the National Book Awards, last night Fountain took home the prestigious National Book Critics Circle Awards for Fiction.

Among the other big winners were Andrew Solomon, who won the Nonfiction category for Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity, Robert A. Caro in the Biography category for The Passage of Power: The Years of Lyndon Johnson, and D.A. Powell for his poetry collection Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys.

Check out all the winners, as well as all the finalists.
