The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka is the winner of the 2012 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction!
I am pleased to announce on my blog that The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka has been selected as the winner of the 2012 PEN/ Faulkner Award for Fiction. I wrote about this beautiful novel in one of my posts. It's a poetic novel that tells the story of Japanese "picture brides" brought to California in the early XX century.
The four other finalists were:
- Russell Banks for Lost Memory of Skin
- Don DeLillo for The Angel Esmeralda: Nine Stories
- Anita Desai for The Artist of Disappearance
- Steven Millhauser for We Others: New and Selected Stories
