Pick Me! Pick Me!

... wait, I don't have a book yet.

The Pulitzer Prizes in literature have been announced. Unlike the NY Times, I'll list poetry first...Natasha Trethewey for Native Guard. Southern Spaces has a video with Ms. Trethewey reading her poem "Elegy for the Native Guards," as well as an older video of her reading "Theories of Time and Space." I haven't heard of her before, but these videos are pretty interesting.

In fiction, Cormac McCarthy won for The Road. His website's already been updated with the news.
