National Book Award Finalists Announced

The NBA finalists were announced today...thoroughly confusing basketball fans around the world.

The fiction line-up looked like this:

Mark Z. Danielewski, Only Revolutions (Pantheon)
Ken Kalfus, A Disorder Peculiar to the Country (Ecco/HarperCollins)
Richard Powers, The Echo Maker (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
Dana Spiotta, Eat the Document (Scribner/Simon & Schuster)
Jess Walter, The Zero (Judith Regan Books/HarperCollins)

I'm pulling for Powers for what should be obvious reasons at this point. If you ever want to have an experience that leaves you shaking your head check out Danielewski.
