YARMOUTH, Maine - Yarmouth author Lily King says she was "completely surprised, and thrilled, and extremely honored" by her nomination for the prestigious National Book Critics Circle award.

"Some of my very favorite writers are on that list," she says, "so it's truly thrilling to be a part of it."

Those writers include Chang-rae Lee for "Such a Full Sea," Marlon James for "A Brief History of Seven Killings," Rabih Alameddine for "An Unnecessary Woman," and Marilynne Robinson for "Lila."
