Mason Wins 2020 JCO Prize
Daniel Mason, author of A Registry of My Passage Upon the Earth and The Winter Soldier (Little, Brown) and two other works of fiction and a clinical assistant professor in the Stanford University Department of Psychiatry, has been named the recipient of the 2020 Joyce Carol Oates Prize by the Simpson Literary Project. The annual prize honors "a mid-career author of fiction who has earned a distinguished reputation and the widespread approbation and gratitude of readers" and "emerged and continually emerging authors of major consequence—short stories and/or novels—at the relatively middle stage of a burgeoning career." Prize winners receive a $50,000 award to encourage and support forthcoming work. The Prize is administered by the Simpson Literary Project.
