Congratulations to the new group of Guggenheim Fellows in fiction and nonfiction, which, in addition to such luminaries as Kiran Desai and Colson Whitehead, includes past Millions contributors J.C. Hallman, Terese Svoboda, and Ben Marcus.

is the author of City on Fire and A Field Guide to the North American Family. In 2017, he was named one of Granta's Best Young American Novelists.


  1. Does Colson Whitehead really need a fellowship? The huge advances he gets for his novels and the money he gets from them being optioned for the movies isn’t enough? Oink, oink.

  2. It would be interesting to study writers’ output before and after they receive a Guggenheim. Sight unseen I would read their pre-Guggenheim books before I would read their post fellowship work
