From a New York Times story by Elizabeth A. Harris headlined “Here Are This Year’s National Book Awards Finalists”:

Three debut novels were among the five National Book Award fiction finalists announced on Tuesday.

All This Could be Different,” by Sarah Thankam Mathews, follows a young, queer immigrant from India. Tess Gunty’s “The Rabbit Hutch” takes place over the course of one week in an affordable housing complex in Indiana. And in Alejandro Varela’s “The Town of Babylon,” a queer Latinx professor moves back to suburban Long Island to take care of his parents.
