National Book Award Nominee Lily Tuck
All Things Considered, Sunday, November 14, 2004 at 0am
Lily Tuck is one of the five National Book Awards finalists — each of them women, each of them writing in New York City. Tuck led the life of a very obscure novelist until she was nominated for The News from Paraguay. Tuck tells Martha Woodroof about her account of two lovers tangled in a mid-19th century war that wiped out 90 percent of Paraguay's male population. (Shortride)
