The judges called the book "both a grand comic satire on the contemporary American South and the tender story of a boy and his Bunyanesque father, told with the comic punch of David Sedaris and the wild, burlesque charm of Mark Twain."
Runners-up were Jason Gay for Little Victories (Anchor) and Mary Norris for Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen (Norton).
