Writers' Workshop alumni Garth Greenwell and Adam Haslett are two of ten authors named to the longlist for the National Book Award in Fiction for 2016

Garth Greenwell was nominated for his debut novel, What Belongs to You, which New York Times book critic Dwight Garner praised as "an incandescent first novel." Adam Haslett was nominated for his book, Imagine Me Gone. A review in The New Yorker noted "Haslett’s second novel depicts, with candor and tenderness, a family’s struggle with the effects of mental illness . . . Especially moving is Haslett’s ability to anatomize the ways that a family contorts itself around one member’s struggles."

The final awards will be announced at the National Book Awards Ceremony on November 16.
