Congrats, Jenny Shank, on High Plains Book Award!

Jenny Shank‘s novel, The Ringer (The Permanent Press) won this year’s High Plains Book Award for fiction.

“Shank’s first at-bat as a novelist is a hit,” says Kirkus, of Shank’s tale of Denver cop Ed O’Fallon, involved in drug raid gone wrong. Both O’Fallon and the family of the raid’s victim come together over their sons’ baseball teams.

Shank, of Boulder, Colo., shares this year’s High Plains awards with, among others, Shann Ray for his “American Masculine” short stories and Jim Harrison for his poetry collection, “Songs of Unreason.”

Tom McGuane was named the Emeritus Award winner.
