Does the National Book Critics Circle select great reading group picks? You decide!

The National Book Critics Circle Awards nominees were announced on Saturday. Elizabeth Strout, 2008 finalist and author of Olive Kitteridge, announced the fiction finalists:

Bonnie Jo Campbell, American Salvage Marlon James, The Book of Night Women
Michelle Huneven, Blame
Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall
Jayne Anne Phillips, Lark and Termite

Lit by Mary KarrAnd, hurray for Mary Carr! One of my favorite books is still The Liar's Club by Mary Carr. In 1995, Carr turned the literary world upside down with her memoir, The Liar's Club, -- creating a new level for that genre. Now, Carr has been selected as a NBCC finalist for her new autobiography, Lit. I haven't read Lit yet, but it is now on the top of my TBR stack!

Congratulations to all finalists.

The National Book Critics Circle Award Ceremony will be held on March 11.
