In 2006, the National Book Foundation established the 5 Under 35 prize to recognize young, debut fiction writers whose work promised to leave a lasting impression on the literary landscape. 5 Under 35 has identified some of the most celebrated young writers working today. 5 Under 35 Honorees are selected by authors previously recognized by the National Book Foundation, either by National Book Awards or 5 Under 35 itself.
