The Long Awards Season

As noted, Southern California has abandoned both Winter and Spring in favor of a more easily managed (and pronounced) Awards Season. We suspect Fall may soon fold into this single season — and we worry that Summer may not be far behind. After all, we’re edging toward Memorial Day, and awards are still being announced. This week, the Bellweather Prize for Fiction was awarded to Marjorie Kowalski Cole for her novel Correcting the Landscape. We like the sound of this award, by the way — Bellweather is in support of social change (we’re thinking we need more of that), so much so that we’re going to refrain from puzzling over the “…even-numbered years…” awards schedule.

    After reading Kissing the Virgin’s Mouth I wanted to read all other award winners. I can’t find who won the prize in 2002. Please let me know. Thanks.
