As for second books, I really liked Field Knowledge by Morri Creech, For Love of Common Words by Steve Scafidi, and Fragment of the Head of a Queen by Cate Marvin, among others.

Other finalists for the prize were Morri Creech for The Sleep of Reason (The Waywiser Press) and Adrian Matejka for The Big Smoke (Penguin). Matejka’s book was also; that prize for Incarnadine, also from Graywolf.
