Sherman Alexie Beats Lorrie Moore

Last night Sherman Alexie beat Lorrie Moore and Barbara Kingsolver. And people applauded as he did so.

A shonda? No, just the shortlist at the presentation of the PEN/Faulkner award for fiction on March 23. Alexie, the Native American writer, won for “War Dances.” Lorrie Moore lost for “A Gate at the Stairs” and Barbara Kingsolver for “The Lacuna.”
