Pulitzer Prizes Announced

PW covers the winners of the Pulitzer Prizes for literature, announced yesterday. The article states:
"While it may have been overshadowed in the press and at bookstores by another similarly titled Civil War epic—E.L. Doctorow's The March—Geraldine Brooks took the spotlight today winning the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her book, March (Viking). While we refrain from commenting on the odd overlap (Doctorow's book was, by the way, a finalist for the fiction prize as well), here's a rundown of today's winners:"
March by Geraldine Brooks (Viking)
Polio: An American Story by David M. Oshinsky (Oxford University Press)
American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin (Alfred A. Knopf)
Late Wife by Claudia Emerson (Louisiana State University Press)
