Philip Caputo

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and novelist Philip Caputo has now written 17 books. The most recent is "Hunter's Moon," a collection of interconnected short stories set in Michigan's wild Upper Peninsula. His latest novel, "Some Rise By Sin," described the moral dilemmas facing a missionary priest in northern Mexico. Although he is known best for his Vietnam War memoir, "A Rumor of War," Caputo's Pulitzer Prize was for his team investigative reporting of voter fraud in Chicago.
