Today at lunch, the shortlists with the nominees in the three August Award categories will be announced at Postmuseum, Stockholm. Since I’ve served on the fiction jury, I’ll show up to cheer on the nominees. I might also cry a little, because it is all so moving. We have some damn fine writers in this country!
In fact, we have more than six damn fine writers publishing really, really good books this year, so it would have been nice to get to make a long-list too. But there it is. Rules are rules!
I’ll post some pictures later if catch anything nice.
