[Awards] PEN/Faulkner and Pulitzer Prize Awards

Some award news updates...

Not to be confused with the PEN/Hemingway Award, the 2012 winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award is Julie Otsuka for her novel, The Buddha in the Attic. Visit the PEN/Faulkner Fiction Award page for more details.

The 2012 Pulitzer Prize winners were announced April 17th with a "No Award" distinction for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

The fiction nominees were The Pale King by David Foster Wallace (posthumously), Swamplandia! by Karen Russell, and Train Dreams by Denis Johnson. If the finalists fail to obtain a majority vote, "No Award" is chosen by the Board. The Pulitzer Prize Fact Sheet explains this special circumstance.

Other Pulitzer Prize winners include:

History - Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention by the late Manning Marable

General Nonfiction - The Swerve: How the World Became Modern, by Stephen Greenblatt
