Pulitzer Prize for fiction goes to "The Goldfinch"

Donna Tartt’s sprawling literary epic that centers on a mysterious little painting has taken the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, besting other lengthy titles, such as The Son by Phillipp Meyer and The Woman Who Lost Her Soul by Bob Sacochis, both of which received “A” grades from EW.

The Goldfinch, Tartt’s first novel in more than a decade, was clearly worth the wait. It not only won critical raves but has become a bona fide commercial best-seller. A film version produced by Nina Jacobson (The Hunger Games) is in the works. The Flick by Annie Baker took the honor for drama and Tom’s River: A Story of Science and Salvation by Dan Fagin won for general nonfiction
