Publishers, reporters and authors gathered Tuesday at the New School in New York City to celebrate this year’s exceptional nominees for the National Book Awards. NPR recorded the 10 nominated authors for fiction and nonfiction reading from their works. These 10 books — which tell the stories of a young drug smuggler, lovable philanderers, holograms in the Saudi desert, and more — inspired, informed and entertained readers in 2012.
