Pulitzer Prize 2016 winners announced

The 2016 Pulitzer Prizes were announced in New York on 18 April. The Fiction award was presented to The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen (Corsair)—a ‘layered immigrant tale told in the wry, confessional voice of a “man of two minds”—and two countries, Vietnam and the United States’. The other finalists for fiction were: Get in Trouble: Stories (Kelly Link, Text) and Maud’s Line (Margaret Verble, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). Awards were also announced in a number of other book categories, including history, biography, poetry and general nonfiction, with each winner receiving US$10,000 (A$12,890).
