The HSU/CR Book of the Year Nominees for 2012/13 are:
When the Killing’s Done by T.C. Boyle
The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka
Two non-fiction titles:
Outliers: The Story of Success by Malcolm Gladwell
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Boyle is not an accomplished enough author to have two of his books as Book of the Year. I hope the committee considers that we have already had Tortilla Curtain as a selection, and that plot and theme are not criteria enough to have a second novel by an author–unless it is a writer of the stature of a Nobel, Pulitzer, or National Book Award winner.
