More dispatches from what will undoubtedly go down in history as the Great Pulitizer Prize For Fiction Brouhaha of 2012:

The Tournament of Books team over at The Morning News have posted an in depth commentary on this year’s withheld Pulitzer Prize for fiction. The Wall Street Journal asks a handful of book critics to name the books they thought should’ve won. And over at Moby LivesNick Davies has rounded up the statements made by the jury in response to the brouhaha. Lev Grossman, on the other hand, outlines why he’s totally okay with the board’s decision. And of course, we’ve got links and excerpts for all the finalists over here.

    I’m confused about the Morning News link. The article I read had them discuss the controversy, but not name any books they’d have picked instead. Is there another article, or did you misstate that part?

    Hi Kati,

    Thanks for your correction. I’ve fixed the wording of this curiosity to more accurately describe the linked articles. My apologies for any confusion that may have arisen from my error.
