Adam Ross is nominated for the 2010 Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize

August 12, 2010 When a debut novel gets this much media attention and inspires this kind of intense, high-level conversation among reviewers like Slate’s Hanna Rosin and The New Yorker’s Margaret Talbot, it was bound to happen: Adam Ross’s Mr. Peanut has made the short list for The Center for Fiction’s 2010 Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize. The winner will be announced at an awards dinner in New York City on December 6 —by which time we at Chapter 16 fully expect Mr. Peanut to have picked up a few more awards. Stay tuned.
