Easing on down The Road

| No Comments

Paul Witcover of [info]theinferior4 somehow scoops everyone on Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer win for The Road.

A bigger Pulitzer stunner, though, is that Ray Bradbury gets a special citation for "his distinguished, prolific and deeply influential career as an unmatched author of science fiction and fantasy." As Paul says, it's almost like reading a Pulitzer report from a parallel universe.

Elsewhere online, Wikipedia had this to say about the 2007 Pulitzers:

The Pulitzer Prizes for 2007 were announced on an otherwise unremarkable day in April. Winners included some people at the L.A. Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other rags nationwide. Notably, the New York Times won only a single prize, leading to a sense of despair in the newsroom, accompanied by resentment at Columbia's board of trustees. Times staffers could only take comfort in the fact that the Washington Post got stiffed entirely.
Check it out fast, because this gem surely won't last there for long. (I took a screen shot.)
