The New York Times released its list of “100 Notable Books of 2011” this week, and the Ransom Center holds the archives of five writers on the list.
To celebrate this news, the Ransom Center will give away a signed copy of a book by one of these writers to the first three people to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the names of all five writers on the list.
Update: Congratulations to Lev L., Robert P., and Ry P. for their correct responses of Russell Banks, Julian Barnes, Don DeLillo, Denis Johnson, and David Foster Wallace. They will all receive a signed copy of Denis Johnson’s novel Already Dead.
