Fall '12 Reading Group List


“Sometimes we say that a book tries to be too many things. This thought-provoking novel is many things -- an adventure tale, an examination of identity and the nature of the self, a meta-narrative, a political novel, a love story, a survivor story, and more -- and it succeeds on all counts. Like the works of David Mitchell, The Orphan Master's Son is at once a joy to read, a challenging work, and, ultimately, a terrific and satisfying story.”
— Mark LaFramboise, Politics & Prose Books and Coffee Shop, Washington, DC
