As we wrote about yesterday , this week is the submission period for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award , and it seems the occasion has stirred up debate about the merits of the award.
Yesterday, Mediabistro's GalleyCat posted a defense of the success of last year's winning book, Fresh Kills , in response to snarky reader comments. Another Galleycat post yesterday linked to an article published in N1BR, the new online book supplement to lit mag n+1, written by Darryl Lorenzo Wellington, one of last year's award judges. And, today, GalleyCat posted a correction to Wellington's article submitted by Jane Ciabattari , president of the National Book Critics Circle . Let's see what tomorrow brings.
