Congratulations to Edith Pearlman, 2011 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) winner for fiction!!  

Steep yourself in this wise, unnerving, compassionate collection of stories. And, kudos to Lookout Books for publishing it. What's so special about Lookout Books? This tiny press in North Carolina is on a mission to "seek out emerging and historically underrepresented voices, as well as works by established writers overlooked by commercial houses." Now go and buy Binocular Vision. It's a beauty.

The exquisite Ms. Pearlman has published more than 250 works of fiction and nonfiction in national mags, literary mags, and anthologies including Best American Short Stories, The Pen/O. Henry Prize Stories, and The Pushcart Prize. She is the author of four story collections, and lives in Brookline, MA, my home town!
