Oh No They Didn't!
Last week, the Pulitzer Prize board said it would not award a Pulitzer in fiction for the first time in 35 years. As you can imagine, this has caused quite an outrage among readers, publishers, librarians, and booksellers. You can get the full scoop here and Ann Patchett, author of the fabulous State of Wonder, eloquently describes her disappointment here. But who needs a fancy-pants committee to tell us the best book of the year! Tell us your favorite fiction read below! My personal faves were The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka, and The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht.
