Elizabeth Strout has won the Pulitzer for Fiction
The Pulitzer Prizes have been announced, and the winner for Fiction is Liz Strout, for her recent novel in stories, Olive Kitteridge. I haven't read this one, but I've loved Liz's other books. Jeepers, this means that I can now say, in an offhanded way, of course, that yes, I have a friend who won the Pulitzer. Hats off to Liz! Huzzah! Hurray! A fine writer, and a fine human being.
