The National Book Awards fiction longlist was announced Thursday morning on The New Yorker‘s website, and it includes both a Pulitzer Prize-winner (Adam Johnson, with Fortune Smiles), a pair of debut novelists (literary agent-turned memoirist-turned novelist Bill Clegg, with Did You Ever Have a Family?, and Angela Flournoy with The Turner House), and three short story collections (Karen E. Bender’s Refund, Johnson’s Fortune Smiles, and Edith Pearlman’s Honeydew). Other much buzzed-about, highly praised novels like Hanya Yanagihara’s A Little Life and Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies are also included on the list.
