Literary Awards Hangover: 2018 Edition

You’d think after four literary hangovers, we’d be better at managing our awards-fuelled reading binges and calling it a night. Proving once again that moderation isn’t our strong suit, we bring you our fifth annual Literary Awards Hangover, a coffee-sipping, greasy-spoonin’ celebration where we pair this year’s nominees with just-as-deserving indie followups.
