National Book Award Winners: Erdrich and Boo

November 15, 2012

Louise Erdrich has won the National Book Award for fiction for her novel “The Round House” about a woman raped in a Native American community. Katherine Boo has received the nonfiction prize for “Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity,” which focuses on the poor in India and government corruption. Competition for both categories was especially fierce this year with several prominent authors considered for the honors. See the NY Times article.
