Last night, Jaimy Gordon, author of Lord Of Misrule, took home the 2010 National Book Award in Fiction. Vintage Books will be publishing the paperback edition of Lord of Misrule in Spring 2011 — and we couldn’t be prouder! Set at the fictional Indian Mound Downs, the book is a beautifully written tale of the swindlers and dreamers who circle the run-down racetrack. After the jump, you can watch video of Jaimy Gordon accepting her award.
You can also read an interview with Jaimy Gordon here.
Congratulations also to our Knopf Doubleday family finalists — Megan Stack, whose Every Man In This Village Is a Liar will be published in paperback by Anchor Books in June 2011; and Peter Carey, whose Parrot and Olivier in America will be published by Vintage Books in January 2011.
