Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction
They've announced that this year's Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction will go to ... George Saunders.
The choice was apparently up to the Librarian of Congress -- Carla Hayden, who selected Saunders from "more than 88 distinguished literary figures".
Saunders will be honored on 12 August.
