The Believer Book Awards: Editors’ Longlists

by The Editors
January 8th, 2019

Each year, the editors of The Believer give out awards to the works of fiction and poetry they found to be the best written and most underappreciated. This year, for the first time, they have added a third award in the category of nonfiction. Below are the longlists of nominees for each category. The short lists and winners will be announced in our April/May issue, and the winners will be honored at a ceremony on the opening night of the 2019 Believer Festival in Las Vegas on April 25.
