The National Book Critics Circle on the Art of Criticism . (Margo Jefferson Walton Muyumba Maureen Corrigan Carlos Lozada Tom Beer ) Four leading literary critics—Pulitzer Prize–winning critic Margo Jefferson, whose new book Negroland won an NBCC award in 2016; NPR critic Maureen Corrigan, winner of an Edgar Award for Criticism; Carlos Lozada of the Washington Post, winner of the NBCC’s Balakian Award for criticism and NBCC VP/Membership Walton Muyumba—discuss the fresh ways critics are writing about books today, including the new hybridity. All represent criticism as a provocative activity, all are always in search of something new to say.
