Pulitzer Round-Up

April 21, 2009 | No Comments

I’m thrilled that one of my favorite books of last year, Olive Kitteredge by Elizabeth Strout, has just won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction (read my capsule review on this blog on 5th Feb). Another two winners announced yesterday also appeared in my column for Urbanite magazine – in history, The Hemingses of Monticello by Annette Gordon-Reed history, and in poetry, The Shadow of Sirius by W. S. Merwin in poetry. It seems I can pick ’em (or at least two of ’em!).
