Matthiessen wins his second National Book Award

Peter I guess the (idiotic) suggestion that Peter Matthiessen's Shadow Country - the reworked, edited version of his Mr. Watson trilogy - wasn't really a new book was ignored on Wednesday, when Matthiessen won the National Book Award.

And if you missed him at the Miami Book Fair International, don't miss Fred Grimm's wonderful story on the writer, who won the nonfiction prize 30 years ago for The Snow Leopard.

Other winners:

Annette Gordon-Reed, nonfiction, for The Hemingses of Monticello

Mark Doty, poetry, Fire to Fire

Judy Blundell, young people's literature, What I Saw and How I Lied
