Craig Nova at top of list, in New Yorker’s ‘Best Books of 2012’

The New Yorker asked some of its contributors for their favorite books from the year. The first book on the “Best Books of 2012″ list?

Craig Nova’s “The Constant Heart.”

“Nova challenges the reader, writes passages as beautiful as some of James Salter’s, is always upping the ante, and is always himself,” says Ann Beattie.

The list is posted on The New Yorker’s Page-Turner blog.

Nova has taught in the MFA Writing Program here at UNCG since 2005.

He is an award-winning author of 12 novels and an autobiography. His writing has appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New York Times Magazine and Men’s Journal, among other publications.
