Donna Tartt wins 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction

The 2014 Pulitzer Prizes were announced Monday.  Below are the winners in the Fiction, Drama, and Poetry categories, followed by the Fiction finalists:

FICTION - "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt (Little, Brown)
DRAMA - "The Flick" by Annie Baker
HISTORY - "The Internal Enemy: Slavery and War in Virginia, 1772-1832" by Alan Taylor (W.W. Norton)
BIOGRAPHY - "Margaret Fuller: A New American Life" by Megan Marshall (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
POETRY - "3 Sections" by Vijay Seshadri (Graywolf Press)
GENERAL NONFICTION - "Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation" by Dan Fagin (Bantam Books)
MUSIC - "Become Ocean" by John Luther Adams (Taiga Press/Theodore Front Musical Literature)

Here are the Fiction finalists:

Philipp Meyer, The Son

Bob Shacochis, The Woman Who Lost Her Soul

I've read both the Tartt and Meyer and each were high on my list of Top 25 2013 releases.  Both are well-deserving of this honor and perhaps in the near future I'll get around to reviewing The Goldfinch (it is also a finalist for the Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction).
