JpCambert AlexKerner It is non-fiction, but you are correct: I was under the impression it was a fictionalized memoir from father to son while reading it. Tsar of Love and Techno Finalists: It has been a year for books. Thanks for making and maintaining the lists.
I wouldn't mind seeing Marra's book walk away with it either.
I cannot commit this year at all. It would be wonderful to see it recognized. I love doing my final predictions. The last couple of years I've done pretty terribly. I haven't correctly predicted a winner since Jennifer Egan's I hadn't read The Orphan Master's Son when it won, but it has since become one of my favorite books, period.
Because of my passion for two of these works I'm slightly afraid to predict them, but here goes: I've been reading it lately, and I think it too stands a chance of being noticed.
I know Did you ever have Family has gotten mixed reviews on here, but I wouldn't mind seeing that win.
There seems to be nothing that is a solid lock. I haven't read all of the books purportedly in the running, but there are a few which I think may receive some consideration. The Sellout is a sharp and biting satire in which Mr. Beatty walks a tightrope between outrageous hilarity and profound contemplation on themes that run the gamut.
It wouldn't be the first comic novel to win the Pulitzer, but I wonder if the jury and board will go for it. It might well win the prize.
Marra's voice is level and distinct, and in the seeming simplicity of its prose lies much complexity. I wouldn't be surprised to see it named as a winner or a finalist. The Turner House might also be in the running here.
Flournoy is a wonderful writer, and the manner in which she investigates American themes through the lives of the Turner family. It also takes place in Detroit, a city whose exploration did well for Jeffrey Eugenides.
Perhaps even a winner.
Fates and Furies has some lovely prose, but as others have observed, the story itself is a bit insular. It does have those moments in which details are presented in a striking manner, which is something it has in common with a number of Pulitzer winners. Groff is a very good writer, and though she's been nominated elsewhere for this novel, she has yet to win a prize or award.
So it might well be another finalist or winner. And what of The Sympathizer? Viet Thanh Nguyen writes with a sharp eye and ear for human beings caught in extraordinary circumstances.
It wouldn't surprise me if this novel was a finalist, maybe even a winner. Well, Adam Johnson is really in a class by himself. He's one of the best writers we have, I think. He can take the most bizarre situations and make them seem realistic and inevitable. If pressed, I say Orphan's Master is my favorite novel.
Johnson having already won a Pulitzer, many say he won't be considered again. At least, not so soon. But I don't know about that. Fortune Smiles is a wonderful collection filled with flawed and all too human characters, and prose that dazzles. I'm not counting this one out.
And then, as sometimes happens, we might get thrown a curveball by the Pulitzer board and jury. They've done it before. Who's to say it won't happen again?An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird..
