Elizabeth Graver's Novel Longlisted for National Book Award

The finalists for the National Book Award for fiction will be announced next week. A few of the books on the longlist: Alice McDermott’s “ Someone,” Jhumpa Lahiri’s “ The Lowland,” Thomas Pynchon’s “ The Bleeding Edge.”

And a beautiful novel by Boston College professor Elizabeth Graver, “ The End of the Point.”

The title refers to Ashaunt Point, a fictional strip of land jutting into the waters off Cape Cod.

We revisit our April 2013 conversation with Graver.
