We are proud to announce that Out of the Vinyl Deeps: Ellen Willis on Rock Music has been nominated for the 2012 National Book Critics Circle award for criticism.

We had a huge outpouring of press for the book (available at Ellen's Tumblr page) and are thrilled to know that has been in the hands of many. The National Book Award nomination means more people will get to know Ellen's work, and we are excited for that.
