Pulitzer surprise

A tiny press, an unknown author,  a compelling story carried to publication by word of mouth, and without a Facebook page! That’s how Paul Harding’s novel “Tinkers” won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction this week. A fascinating, heartening account of this season’s Cinderella by Geoff Edgers in the Boston Globe. (We’ve ordered “Tinkers” for the Library!)
