HE WON! HE WON, HE WON, HE WON!!!!! And didn't he look CUTE in his suit!?? And in answer to your question at Chasing Ray - we feel ENORMOUSLY lucky, blessed and privileged to have interviewed a National Book Award for Young People's Literature winner -- again. This is #2 for us -- joining our SBBT interview with Gene Luen Yang!

We were SO crossing our fingers for this brilliant and funny and talented man -- and this fabulous book, described to him by one teen as "the Catcher in the Rye for minorities.

Congratulations, Mr. Alexie,
Your fans A.F. and TadMack

Oh, yeah! Oh, yeah!

I did a little dance last night when I heard he won.

I'm thrilled. This must be such a vindication for a man who had snarky criticisms of his books printed on his basketball teeshirts (taking some of the sting out of the snark, I am guessing). Mazel tov!
