The National Book Awards’ fiction longlist includes Richard Powers, who won the award in 2006; Mountain Goats vocalist John Darnielle, who was on Fresh Air yesterday; and Molly Antopol and Phil Klay, who were both nominated for their debut story collections. Although a few of the nominees were expected — Anthony Doerr’s novel All the Light We Cannot See is one of the year’s breakaway hits, and Marilynne Robinson is a living legend — the list as a whole is varied and features a handful of underappreciated or relatively new writers.

The shortlist will be announced Oct. 15, and the winners on Nov. 19. The full longlist is here.
