独立书商图书奖揭晓

May 25, 2011 on 12:48 pm | In 文坛书讯 | 3 Comments

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.”

  2. My name is Philip Flowers. And I am a professional Content writer with many years of experience in writing.

    My main focus is to solve problems related to writing. And I have been doing it for many years. I have been with several associations as a volunteer and have assisted in many ways.
    My love for writing has no end. It is like the air we breathe, something I cherish with all my being. I am a passionate writer who started at an early age.
    I’m happy that I`ve already sold several copies of my works in different countries like France and others too numerous to mention.
    I also work in an organization that provides assistance to many people from different parts of the world. People always come to me because I work no matter how complex their projects are. I help them to save money, because I feel happy when people come to me for professional help.

  3. Hello everyone , I’m Philip Flowers.
    Welcome to my homepage . I started writing in high school after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for almost a year before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing research papers because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing talent with a love of learning, research paper writing only makes sense as a job.
    I’m passionate about helping the students of the future in their school career. When they don’t have time for their paper , I am there to help.
