PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction

The PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, established in 1980, annually honors an American fiction writer with a $15,000 prize. Three judges choose five finalists before narrowing the list down to the utlimate winner. Located at Washington D.C.'s Folger Shakespeare Library, the award is funded by grants, contributions, special events, and benefit readings. The latest winner, awarded in February 2009, was Joseph O'Neill for his novel Netherland.
