20 Sep ABUNDANCE on National Book Award Longlist
Jakob Guanzon has landed on the National Book Award longlist for fiction with his debut novel ABUNDANCE! It’s an astonishing moment for a book and author that is equal to it. If you haven’t read it, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
The National Book Awards had this to say about it:
Jakob Guanzon’s debut novel Abundance follows a father and son for a pivotal 24 hours after they’re evicted from their trailer on New Years’ Eve. Each chapter announces the amount of cash the father has in his pocket—beginning at McDonald’s and finishing at Walmart—and exposes the deep inequities faced by Americans today.
I’ll be rooting for Jakob come shortlist time!
