So ... crime does sort of pay?
Dan Mallory’s The Woman in the Window — published under the name A.J. Finn — has been nominated for the British Book Awards.
That comes despite his confession earlier this year that he made up portions of his biography, including that he was a brain cancer survivor.
We’ll find out whether Mallory receives the crime and thriller book of the year honors on May 13; other notable nominees include:
The Tattooist of Auschwitz, by Heather Morris (debut book of the year).
Children of Blood and Bone, by Tomi Adeyemi (children’s fiction book of the year).
Transcription, by Kate Atkinson (fiction book of the year).
Milkman, by Anna Burns (fiction book of the year).
Becoming, by Michelle Obama (nonfiction narrative book of the year).
Fire and Fury, by Michael Wolff (nonfiction narrative book of the year).
Here are all of the British Book Awards shortlists.
