Fiction

The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Grove Press)

A layered immigrant tale told in the wry, confessional voice of a “man of two minds”—and two countries, Vietnam and the United States.

 

History

Custer’s Trials: A Life on the Frontier of a New America by T.J. Stiles (Alfred A. Knopf)

A rich and surprising retelling of the journey of the iconic American soldier whose death turns out not to have been the main point of his life. (Moved by the Board from the Biography category.)

 

Biography or Autobiography

Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan (Penguin Press)

A finely crafted memoir of a youthful obsession that has propelled the author into a distinguished writing career.

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
