Guthrie wuz robbed!
Jess Walter's written three terrific novels. I couldn't be happier that he took home the big prize -- and that's not because of the title.
Hey, I actually read the Best Novel winner and I agree with Vince. It's really good.
It's in my TBR pile (which is about the size of the Matterhorn).
