Hi Mary! Are you doing the Advanced Dev Ed course? (If so – me, too!) 🙂
I forgot ‘Light’ won the Pulitzer! That is pretty shocking, especially when you compare it to something else that won, like Donna Tartt’s ‘The Goldfinch’ – there’s just no comparison!
I’ve become much more cynical over time about award winners and ‘critically acclaimed’ books. It seems to me that there’s certain authors who, once they’ve been categorised as ‘literary’, will always be put on a pedestal, no matter the quality of their work.
