Elizabeth Graver's Novel Longlisted for National Book Award

Originally published on Thu October 31, 2013 10:00 am

The finalists for the National Book Award for fiction will be announced next week. A few of the books on the longlist: Alice McDermott’s “Someone,” Jhumpa Lahiri’s “The Lowland,” Thomas Pynchon’s “The Bleeding Edge.”

And a beautiful novel by Boston College professor Elizabeth Graver, “The End of the Point.”

The title refers to Ashaunt Point, a fictional strip of land jutting into the waters off Cape Cod.

We revisit our April 2013 conversation with Graver.
