In 1952, Bernard Malamud’s first published novel was The Natural.
The movie version starring Robert Redford came 32 years later.

The 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction was awarded to Anthony Doerr “All the Light We Cannot See” (Scribner), which the Pulitzer committee called “an imaginative and intricate novel inspired by the horrors of World War II and written in short, elegant chapters that explore human nature and the contradictory power of technology.”

Finalists: Joyce Carol Oates (“Lovely, Dark, Deep”), Richard Ford (“Let Me Be Frank With You”), and Laila Lalami (“The Moor’s Account”).
