The Gover Prize
Robert Gover - 2011
Former BNW Editor Robert Gover grew up in an endowed orphanage (Girard College in Philadelphia), worked as a journalist, and became a best-selling novelist at age 30. His first novel, One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding, a satire on American racism, remains a cult classic and was among the prime books exposuring the sexual, racial, and linguistic hypocrisy which governed the USA in the mid-20th century.
