Alright I'm a day late on this one but I just wanted to do a quick post...
Yesterday the Pulitzer Prize winners were announced. For a complete list of the winners you can go here but here's the list as it would pertain to this blog (and that's what's really important, right?):
FICTION - "A Visit from the Goon Squad" by Jennifer Egan (Alfred A. Knopf)
DRAMA - "Clybourne Park" by Bruce Norris
HISTORY - "The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery" by Eric Foner (W. W. Norton & Company)
BIOGRAPHY - "Washington: A Life" by Ron Chernow (The Penguin Press)
POETRY - "The Best of It: New and Selected Poems" by Kay Ryan (Grove Press)
GENERAL NONFICTION - "The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer" by Siddhartha Mukherjee (Scribner)
I'm going to be honest, I really haven't heard of most of these. The Emperor of All Maladies...yes. A Visit from the Goon Squad...no. And I haven't READ any of them! Does that make me a bad reader?
What about the rest of you? Have you read any of these? What do you think of the winners? Any destined to become future classics?
Sound off below!
