I read The Sojourn by Andrew Krivak. It's a straightforwardly written historical novel about WWI as seen by a young soldier. It has been compared to Cold Mountain and The English Patient, but I don't know why. It's only like those two novels in its subject.
: According to this Fictionweek site, the five finalists for the 2011 national book award for fiction are "The Sojourn" by Andrew Krivak, "The Tiger's Wife" by Tea Obreht, "The Buddha in the Attic" by Julie Otsuka, "Binocular Vision" by Edith Pearlman, and "Salvage the Bones" by Jesmyn Ward.
: Has anybody here read any of them? Which one do you think will win?
