The Daphnes Announce Shortlist For The Best Books Of 1963

Posted at 10:28PM Sunday 23 Feb 2014

The first-ever Daphne awards shortlist was announced Friday evening in Chicago, setting the stage to declare the best books of 1963.

Yes, there were plenty of literary prizes in 1963, but they went to the wrong books. At least that's the idea behind the awards, created by Bookslut's editor Jessa Crispin. This happens: Famously, "Citizen Kane," declared by film historians the greatest film ever made, didn't get the Oscar — the forgotten drama "How Green Was My Valley" did.
