Pulitzer Prizes

Congratulations to the winners of this year's Pulitzer Prize(s) in Poetry:

Robert Hass for Time and Materials (Ecco/HarperCollins)

and

Philip Schultz for Failure (Harcourt)

I haven't read Schultz's book yet; I'll have to order it.

Among the contenders and winners, particular congratulations to Denis Johnson, whose Tree of Smoke (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) was a Finalist in Fiction, and to Alex Ross, whose The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) was a Finalist for the Prize in General Nonfiction.

I don't know how all of this works, but isn't this old news?

Talia:

You may be thinking of the National Book Awards. Hass also won that (several months ago) for Time and Materials.

The Pulitzers were announced yesterday.

Yes, but Johnson won the NBA.

He was "only" a Finalist for the Pulitzer.
