The other Bezos wins book award

Posted by Kim Peterson at 11:00 AM

MacKenzie Bezos, the wife of Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, is one of 13 people to win an American Book Award for her debut novel, "The Testing of Luther Albright." A full list of winners is on the blog of another winner, Seattle resident Matt Briggs.

On its page about the title, Amazon.com describes it as "rich with symbolism" and predicts that Bezos is off to "a substantial writing career." Might it have been a little awkward to be the staff person writing that one?

At least Amazon also allowed this review to remain on the page: "This book is an endess exercise in self-indulgent navel-gazing."

Here's Seattle Weekly's 2005 profile of Bezos.
