01,以下五本书被美国独立书商选为最佳图书(Indie Booksellers Choice Awards):

Paolo Bacigalupi for The Windup Girl (Night Shade Books)
Adam Levin for The Instructions by (McSweeney’s)
Emily St. John Mandel for The Singer’s Gun (Unbridled)
Karl Marlantes for Matterhorn (Grove/Atlantic)
Nina Revoyr for Wingshooters (Akashic)

都是没听过的作者作品,但Melville出版社的创办人之一Dennis Johnson的一席话也许可以解释这种陌生的原因:

“The award grew out of my distaste for most literary prizes. The point is usually to laud some individual or book that doesn’t really need the stroking. We wanted to come up with something that would better support the ecosystem we live in. The IBCA is good for the author, good for the bookseller, and good for the publisher, and so it’s good for art and industry.”
