1. Los Angeles Times Book Prizes 2013 →

    With ten categories altogether, these book prizes can dig deep, so that authors have a better chance of being celebrated and readers don’t just get more but also more specific reading suggestions.Ozeki’s well-earned win for a work that’s at once meditative and topical should bring more readers to her fold, yet with the Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction Bulawayo can also shine with her child’s-eye view of culture clash. Meanwhile, giving a mystery/thriller award outside the standard genre arena acknowledges that quality writing happens everywhere, and Rowling, who published The Cuckoo’s Calling pseudonymously as Galbraith, gets some nice recognition after the hubbub created by her subsequent outing.
