Disguising the more difficult truths of her life-like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family's future resting on her shoulders, or her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition-Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles. When John Brown, the legendary abolitionist, arrives in the area, an argument between Brown and Henry's master quickly turns violent. Henry is forced to leave town--with Brown, who believes he's a girl.
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.

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.

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.
