Caribbean books on NBCC shortlist

More prizes.... this time the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Awards, the finalists for which were announced in San Francisco yesterday. There are no fewer than four Caribbean-related books on the shortlist: Edwidge Danticat's memoir Brother, I'm Dying and Junot Díaz's novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao--both of them CRB books of the year!--plus Trinidadian-American Arnold Rampersad's biography Ralph Ellision and Dominican-American Julia Alvarez's cultural study Once Upon a Quinceanera.

The NBCCA winners will be decided and announced in March.
