Asterios Polyp Wins in L.A.


David Mazzucchelli's Asterios Polyp took the first graphic-novel prize in the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes this weekend. It's a well-deserved honor, of course, and made even more important because it's the very first time a major book prize has recognized a category for graphic novels. Asterios Polyp is such a wonderful piece of art, and a novel that will resonate with readers for so many years to come, that I'm glad it's getting this major attention. What a fitting recognition for this book.
