Topping April’s top ten signed bestsellers is the winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as, “The single best work of fiction published in 2012,” The Orphan Master’s Son is set in North Korea under Kim Jong Il and tells the story of a man who is both a perpetrator and a victim of crimes committed on behalf of the state. The novel is by turns suspenseful, harrowing, deeply touching, and despite the subject matter – or perhaps because of it - darkly, at times even absurdly, humorous.
And love her or despise her, after Margaret Thatcher’s death early last month it’s no surprise that she appears twice in April’s list, for both The Path to Power and The Downing Street Years.
