The Finalists for the 2023 National Book Awards

From a New York Times story by Elizabeth A. Harris headlined “Here Are the Finalists for the 2023 National Book Awards”:

A dystopian novel about a private, for-profit prison system in which inmates compete for their freedom in death matches that are broadcast live. A history of Native American people and the development of American democracy. And a graphic novel about a Muslim family’s road trip to Disney World.

These books are some of the 25 finalists for this year’s National Book Awards, which were announced Tuesday by the National Book Foundation. The winners will be named on Nov. 15.
