And the Award Goes To...

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is the 2014 winner of the Fiction Pulitzer Prize

"Awarded to "The Goldfinch," by Donna Tartt (Little, Brown), a beautifully written coming-of-age novel with exquisitely drawn characters that follows a grieving boy’s entanglement with a small famous painting that has eluded destruction, a book that stimulates the mind and touches the heart." --Pulitzer.org

Also nominated in this category were Philip Meyer's The Son, a sweeping multi-generational novel that illuminates the violence and enterprise of the American West by tracing a Texas family’s passage from lethal frontier perils to immense oil-boom wealth; and The Woman Who Lost Her Soul by Bob Sacochis, which spans 50 years and three continents as it explores the murky world of American foreign policy in the years prior to 9/11. 

Congratulations to the winner and nominees!
