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 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.Immensely helpful and illuminating to any aspiring writer, this special edition of Stephen King’s critically lauded, million-copy bestseller shares the experiences, habits, and convictions that have shaped him and his work.
