Johns Hopkins professor Alice McDermott and a former student of hers, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, are both nominated for this year’s National Book Critics Circle Award. Winners will be announced during a ceremony in New York this evening, with Javier Marias, Ruth Ozeki, and Donna Tartt also in the running for the fiction prize. Tartt’s The Goldfinch might be considered the frontrunner, but I wouldn’t be surprised if either McDermott’s Someone or Adichie’s Americanah won. 

You can check out my profile of McDermott in our March issue.
