Literary award announcements were flying in yesterday — here are the many writers who were celebrated, including the one who will be taking home two pieces of prestige (and their associated purses).

National Book Foundation 5 Under 35

This award honors an author who is, obviously, younger than thirty-five and who has released their first and only work of fiction in the past five years.

The judges, all of whom either received a National Book Award nod (nomination or prize) or were chosen as a 5 Under 35 recipient, selected these writers to receive a $1,000 prize:

PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction

Yiyun Li’s The Book of Goose has received America’s largest peer-juried prize for fiction.

Over five hundred submissions this year vied for the $15,000 cash prize. 

The four other finalists receive $5,000 each:

Windham Campbell Prize

Eight writers who had no idea they were under consideration for this honor have now each received an unrestricted grant of $165,000.
