Novel set in North Korea ends Pulitzer draught
“A daring and remarkable novel.” — Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
The Orphan Master’s Son, by Adam Johnson, won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction this year. 

The book’s protagonist is a young man who grows to become a threat to the dictator Kim Jong-il, and then attempts to get his wife and get rid of the children out of North Korea.

Last year, no book won the prize. Finalists this year included What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank, by Nathan Englander, and The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey.
