The 2011 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is:
- A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan
The two other finalists are:
- The Privileges, by Jonathan Dee
- The Surrendered, by Chang-rae Lee
If you have read my review of Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad (linked to above), you know that I fully endorse this year’s decision. A part of me, though, likes to rush out and buy the Pulitzer winner upon hearing it, which I don’t get to do this year.
