The Booklover’s Favorite Book for 2012 Wins Pulitzer Prize

This morning on the way to work, I was pleased to learn that The Orphanmaster’s Son won the Pulitzer Price for Fiction for 2013.  Congratulations to Adam Johnson!  The Orphanmaster’s Son is is a “surreal, feverish look at North Korea under Kim Jong Il. The protagonist Jun Do (a play on “John Doe”) grows up in an orphanage, and serves under Kim as a professional kidnapper before deciding to rebel against the state.”

Please read my review posted on December 5, 2011.  You might also enjoy reading the article about Adam Johnson’s Pulitzer win at npr.org.
