PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award

                       The PEN/Hemingway Foundation Award for Debut Fiction is given for a novel or book of short stories by an American author who has not previously published a book of fiction.  The late Mary Hemingway, a member of PEN, founded the award in 1976 both to honor the memory of her husband, Ernest Hemingway, and to recognize distinguished first books of fiction.  The award is funded by the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, which has been administered by the Hemingway Society since 1987, and PEN New England.  A panel of three distinguished fiction writers selects the winner.
