Bookslut launches the Daphne award: What's the best book of 1963?

Posted at 8:24AM Tuesday 28 Jan 2014

Bookslut has a sensible/fun idea in launching 'The Daphnes', which annually: "will celebrate the best books of 50 years ago". The idea being that in the moment literary-prize-choices tend not to reflect lasting value.

People suffering from Franzenfreude may be pleased to learn that an alternate designation of the Daphne among Bookslut editors is "The Corrections" — both for the award's intent and for the 2001 National Book Award-winning novel by Jonathan Franzen.
