Congrats to Knopf Publishing Group author, Joseph O’Neill!

His novel, Netherland, has won the 2009 PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction.

Award judge Rendall Kenan says, “[“Netherland”] is about the new and continuing immigrant story, about New Americans and the making of new American traditions, which has always been New York’s function in the world. O’Neill has created a powerfully entertaining novel, but also a new emblem for our time.”

Past PEN/Faulkner winners include Philip Roth, E.L. Doctorow and the late John Updike.
