The Pulitzer Prize

I’ve got less than 100 pages left in American Pastoral by Philip Roth, but will not write a review until after class next Wednesday.  American Pastoral won the Pulitzer Prize in 1998.  I thought I’d take a look at the Pulitzer list and see if I’d read any others.  I highlighted the ones I’ve read in greenSadly, American Pastoral will only be my fifth.  I’ve got several other in my stack of books to be read, so maybe after I’ve finished with Roth I will try another Pulitzer.  How many have you read? 

 The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction has been awarded since 1948 for distinguished fiction by an American author, preferably dealing with American life. It replaced the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel.

  1. ^ The fiction jury had unanimously recommended the 1974 award to Thomas Pynchon‘s Gravity’s Rainbow, but the Pulitzer board, which has sole discretion for awarding the prize, made no award.
