This year, Ebershoff had the satisfaction of seeing two of the books he edited (Adam Johnson’s The Orphan Master’s Son and Fredrik Logevall’s Embers of War) take home Pulitzer prizes.

“Both books I believed in so much,” says the Random House editor. “You just hope other people see it as you do.”

When Ebershoff isn’t helping others finish their books, he’s working on his own. His last novel, The 19th Wife, was an international best seller, while his 2000 debut, The Danish Girl — based on the life of Lili Elbe, the first person to undergo sex reassignment surgery — is being made into a movie starring Nicole Kidman.
