: Hey, Internet Gal - how about that National Book Award? Did you predict Denis Johnson was going to win it?
Of course. He was the only one with the non-writing credentials (he's a university professor in Texas).
Actually, it is a bit surprising because the book is not written like your usual Nat book award winner. Not since Cold Mountain has there been such a genre-like 3rd-person close winner. And it's about Vietnam, so how could it lose?
