The Road

Se cunosc fericiţii posesori ai unui Pulitzer 2007 [uite-aşa, de parcă ar fi maşină]. Pe mine mă interesează mai ales proza, so the winner is:

“The Road”
The famously reclusive Mr. McCarthy, 73, won for his devastating chronicle of a father and son walking alone across a post-apocalyptic America, cold, dark and strewn with corpses and ash. In her review in The New York Times, Janet Maslin wrote, “ ‘The Road’ would be pure misery if not for its stunning, savage beauty.” It is Mr. McCarthy’s 10th novel.

FINALISTS “After This” by Alice McDermott; “The Echo Maker” by Richard Powers.

de pe bloguri despre The Road : E sau nu e Sci-Fi?

Mai sunt doi câştigători pe care, teoretic, aş vrea să-i citesc:

“Rabbit Hole”
Having built a reputation as a writer of absurdist comedies, Mr. Lindsay-Abaire, 37, surprised theatergoers with a sober, naturalistic portrait of an upper-middle-class family paralyzed by grief after the accidental death of their 4-year-old son.

Mr. Lindsay-Abaire said the idea for the play was inspired by the advice of a teacher who told him he should write about what he fears the most. Of losing a child, he said, “this is real fear, profound fear.”

FINALISTS “Orpheus X” by Rinde Eckert, “Bulrusher” by Eisa Davis, and “Elliot, a Soldier’s Fugue” by Quiara Alegría Hudes.


“Native Guard”
In her third volume of poetry, Ms. Trethewey, the daughter of a black mother and white father, takes inspiration from the life of her mother and the history of Mississippi, where the poet was born. The title poem tells the story of a soldier who served in one of the first all-black regiments in the Union Army.

Ms. Trethewey, 40, teaches creative writing at Emory University in Atlanta.

FINALISTS “The Republic of Poetry” by Martin Espada; “Interrogation Palace: New & Selected Poems 1982-2004” by David Wojahn.
