Ian Frazier Wins The Thurber Prize…Again

January 5, 2010

Yes, we know we’re a little late announcing this but that shouldn’t take away from the entertainment value of the winner–or the runners-up. Frazier’s book,  Lamentations Of The Father, came away with the 2009 Thurber Prize for American Humor. Frazier also won the inaugural Thurber Prize in 1997 for Coyote V. Acme. This year’s runners-up were:

I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

Wrack and Ruin by Don Lee

The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death by Laurie Notaro
