Karen Russell Wins the Young Lions Award

As I read here as well as other places:
The New York Public Library revealed that Karen Russell is the winner of the 2012 Young Lions Fiction Award for her debut novel,Swamplandia! The award includes a $10,000.
This award recognizes an American writer 35-years-old or younger for publishing a novel or a short story collection. Russell... has published a novel and a short story collection (St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves).
Readers of this blog know how much I loved Swamplandia!  If you can't recall, here is a link to all the love.
