Intriguing Pulitzer Prize Fiction winner

The Pulitzer Prize has been announced (check it out at the source). The winners in the categories I’m interested in are:

  • The Fiction prize has gone to a book from a publisher I’ve never come across, Bellevue Literary Press, a book I’d never heard of (mortification!): Tinkers by Paul Harding. A glance at Amazon puts it straight on my list. It doesn’t seem to be released in Australia.
  • History – Liaquat Ahamed’s Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World looked great when I first saw it but is too far back to excite my current interests.
  • Biography/autobiography – The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T. J. Stiles
  • General Nonfiction – The Dead Hand: The Untold Story of the Cold War Arms Race and Its Dangerous Legacy by David E. Hoffman is, I gather, very well written and fascinating, but again I’m not reading general Cold War books at present
