Preparation for the Next Life Wins 2015 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction!

Atticus Lish's debut novel, Preparation for the Next Life, published by Tyrant Books, gripped critics and readers alike with its remarkable portrayal of New York City's underbelly when it was first published this past fall. Now, the story of the relationship between a Chinese immigrant working in a tiny noodle restaurant and an AWOL Iraqi war veteran has won the 2015 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. The prestigious award, announced April 7, honors the best published works of fiction by American citizens in a calendar year and is the largest peer-juried award in the country. As PEN/Faulkner judge Deirdre McNamer notes in the Wall Street Journal: "With ferocious precision, Atticus Lish scours and illuminates the vast, traumatized America that lives, works, and loves outside the castle gates. The result is an incantation, a song of ourselves, a shout."
