2013 Pulitzer Prize: ‘Orphan Master’ Brings Fiction Prize Back

The Orphan MasterBy Gabe Habash

Last year’s biggest Pulitzer announcement was the one that wasn’t made, as the board decided not to award a fiction winner for the first time since 1977. This year’s announcement was less controversial, as prizes were given in every category, including Fiction for Adam Johnson’s The Orphan Master’s Son (Random House).

Other winners were: Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America’s Vietnam by Fredrik Logevall (History); The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo by Tom Reiss (Biography); Stag’s Leap by Sharon Olds (Poetry); Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America by Gilbert King (General Nonfiction).
