More Pulitzer Speculation

By posted at 11:14 am on April 16, 2009 3

covercovercoverMonday is Pulitzer day. You know who we expect to win, but PPrize.com, a site for book collectors, has compiled its own prediction list (via). It’s heavy on literary heavyweights, with Home by Marilynne Robinson, The Widows of Eastwick by John Updike, and Indignation by Philip Roth occupying the top three spots. I like our pick (as anointed by the Tournament of Books A Mercy by Toni Morrison), but I wouldn’t be surprised if it goes to a book a bit more under the radar.

Meanwhile, abebooks has posted their “Top 10 Forgotten Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novels” encompassing potential hidden gems like Now in November by Josephine Winslow Johnson and Honey in the Horn by H.L. Davis.

    Hmmm, The Widows of Eastwick is not Updike at anywhere near his best.

    I think it's going to go to Mathissen for 'Shadow Country'. I hope it's going to Hemon for 'The Lazarus Project'
