Red-Carpet Reads: Award-Winning Novels 1990 - Present

Have you ever read or heard a rapturous book review or fascinating interview with an author, rushed right to your bookstore or to your Kindle to buy this new modern classic, get a couple dozen pages in and . . . realize you got sucked in by a lot of hype? That's why the myriad literary prizes, such as the Pulitzer, the Man Booker, the Nobel, the National Book Award ad infinitum which are announced every year can be so useful -- these awards aren't the opinion of one gullible critic, they're the opinion of several gullible critics, so the winners are vetted a little bit better.
