The Pulitzer Prizes for 2014 in books were announced today, with Donna Tartt's best-selling novel "The Goldfinch" leading the list. The Tartt book, which was shortlisted for other awards including one from the 2014 National Book Critics Circle, captured the fiction prize. The finalists in fiction, which are announced the same day as the winners, were Philipp Meyer's "The Son" and "The Woman Who Lost Her Soul," by Bob Shacochis. The Pulitzer citation by the jury in fiction - Art Winslow, former literary and executive editor, The Nation and past president, National Book Critics Circle (Chair); Ron Charles, deputy editor, The Washington Post Book World; and Sabina Murray, writer and professor, University of Massachusetts, Amherst - called "The Goldfinch" a "beautifully written coming-of-age novel with exquisitely drawn characters that follows a grieving boy’s entanglement with a small famous painting that has eluded destruction, a book that stimulates the mind and touches the heart." Below are the titles that won the Pulitzer today in fiction, history, biography or autobiography, poetry and general nonfiction.
