Benjamin Saenz wins the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction!
March 19, 2013
--

The PEN/Faulkner Foundation awards author Benjamin Alire Sáenz the 2013 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction for his book Everything Begins and Ends at the Kentucky Club!

In the words of judge A.J. Verdelle, “In Everything Begins & Ends at the Kentucky Club, his twentieth published book, Benjamin Alire Sáenz shows how decades working at your craft gives birth to might and mastery … He presents a rendering of reality that is lush, tender, expansive, inclusive and profound. The author takes stunning care with language—English, Spanish, and the languages of sunlight, daylight, dimlight, night light—twisting and tumbling with the whispered language of the human heart. Sáenz also devotes impressive attention to rendering communities on the borders of the United States and Mexico, on the boundaries of sensual and sexual expression, on the edge of despair, and on the cusp of redemption.”
