Pulitzer Fiction: The New Kid On The Block


I've never heard of this novel, but I'm very much looking forward to acquiring it for my Pulitzer collection and reading it. That cover's pretty anemic, though.

This is what I like about the Pulitzers. Since we haven't got access to a nominees list, every year is a surprise and often, a fresh discovery.

NANOWRIMO types: Take note and take heart: Tinkers is apparently a first novel and Paul Harding struggled for several years to find a publisher.

I've never heard of this book but the author's story is indeed encouraging for other struggling writers.

I had never heard of this book either before the announcement...will be anxious to read what others think of it!
