NH Dublin Nominees for 2014

The NH Dublin Committee has selected its nominees for the 2014 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. These are fictional works of high literary merit published in English during 2012. After reading and discussing many excellent books, the committee selected these titles for nomination:
 The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson is a masterful portrayal of the mind-numbing psychological consequences of life in a society where human freedom is sacrificed on every level.

The Round House by Louise Erdrich is a powerfully written coming-of-age story rooted in Native American culture but universal in its themes of family, morality, and love.

Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt is a poignant novel that explores the early days of the AIDS crisis through the eyes of a young teenager. It beautifully captures the shifting worlds and emotions of adolescence.
