SHIP BREAKER is a Finalist for the National Book Award

Ship Breaker Cover

This is so cool that I feel like anything I say just diminishes it. Yes, it’s an honor. Yes, I’m thrilled and overwhelmed and delighted. Three days later, I still haven’t gone back to self-loathing and doubt, which might be a record for me. I feel hugely affirmed and supported by this, particularly as I work on my current project, and I’m grateful for it.
