And The Pulitzer Goes To...

Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light. —Joseph Pulitzer

Our intern sent us a list of the Pulitzer Prize winners that were announced today. I'm telling you, Darren's got nothin on him! The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen took home the prize for fiction. The winner of the biography or autobiography category looks intriguing: Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan. For a list of all the winners and finalists, click here. This talk of winners calls for a walk down Pulitzer Lane, does it not? Let's reminisce for a moment. Of course, my favorite of all time:

To Kill a Mockingbird (1961)


Middlesex (2003)

Beloved (1988)

The Color Purple (1983)


Gilead (2005)

How about you? Did I miss one of your favorites? Is there one you're itching to read? Here's a list of all the past winners for fiction. Here's hoping you find your next favorite book among them.
