Pulitzer Prizes Announced

Yesterday morning (our time) the 2009 Pulitzer Prizes were announced.  You can see the full list here, but I would be a terrible miser if I withheld the book winners from you, and so… *drum roll*

Fiction: Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Stroud

Drama: Ruined by Lynn Nottage (book version won’t be published until November this year)

Poetry: The Shadow of Sirius by W. S. Merwin

History: The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family by Annette Gordon-Reed

Biography: American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by Jon Meacham (trade paperback coming in June)

General Nonfiction: Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II by Douglas A. Blackmon

Note: These would have been up yesterday if I hadn’t fallen asleep at 8 pm. 😉

And another note: doesn’t that picture of Andrew Jackson look eerily like Hugh Grant?
