Pulitzer committee and jury options — plenty of options

So, the Pulitzer committee chose not to select a Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.

Baffling.

Disturbing.

Insulting.

Here are just a few of the novels from 2011 that I would have been happy to see win:

The Tiger’s Wife

Swamplandia

The Leftovers

The Art of Fielding

11/22/63

The Marriage Plot

State of Wonder

IQ 84.

And that’s just off the top of my head. Really: Book publishing needs a Pulitzer — especially right now!
