    finalist?

    "...The Monk in the Garden: The Lost and Found Genius of Gregor Mendel, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award."

    What does it mean by "finalist"? Did the book win the award or not anyway?

    Re: finalist?

    I doubt it- it means that it was on the shortlist that the judges used to select the winner. As it was only a finalist, I imagine that the winner was a different book.
