Pulitzer judges on Monday cited Doerr’s “ imaginative and intricate novel,” which alternates brief chapters between a blind French girl and young Nazi soldier. Doerr, fittingly, was in Paris when the award was announced. A resident of Boise, Idaho, Doerr needed more than a decade to complete All the Light We Cannot See , more time than the war itself. He told The Associated Press there were days when he thought he “ would never finish the book” and was especially surprised by his Pulitzer since the story “ contains no Americans.” The $ 10,000 prize is given “ for distinguished fiction by an American author, preferably dealing with American life.” “ Obviously, it’s wonderful,” the 41- year- old Doerr said of the Pulitzer, adding he was enjoying ice cream with his family when his editor called to share the news. Fiction finalists included previous winner Richard Ford for Let Me Be Frank with You , post- hurricane Sandy stories featuring his longtime protagonist Frank Bascombe, the main character of his 1996 Pulitzer recipient Independence Day . Also Monday, Stephen Adly Guirgis’s Between Riverside and Crazy won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, with judges hailing the New York playwright for using “ dark comedy to confront questions of life and death.” The play tells of a cantankerous excop who owns a piece of real estate on the Upper West Side and makes it a refuge for the hard- luck orphans who have become his surrogate family. The Pulitzer for general non- fiction went to The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert, whose work was praised by judges as “ an exploration of nature that forces readers to consider the threat posed by human behaviour to a world of astonishing diversity.” Kolbert, a staff writer for The New Yorker , was working on an article for the magazine in a small town in Bavaria when she got the news. “ I’m one of those people who didn’t even know the Pulitzers were being announced today,” she said. “ But I heard my email going ‘ ding, ding, ding’ and I knew something was up.” Kolbert said she’d worked for 4 ½ years on the bestseller and attributed its success in part to some famous supporters: Jon Stewart, who highlighted the book on The Daily Show; and former U. S. vice- president and leading environmentalist Al Gore, who recommended The Sixth Extinction in a New York Times review. “ That was huge,” she said. David I. Kertzer’s The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of Fascism in Europe won for biography- autobiography and Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People by Elizabeth A. Fenn won for history. The poetry prize was given to Gregory Pardlo’s Digest and Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields won for music. Wolfe’s work, described by judges as a “ powerful oratorio for chorus and sextet,” was composed after a year’s study of the Pennsylvania coalmining industry at the turn of the 20th century, near where Wolfe grew up in Montgomeryville, Penn. “ I’m definitely shell- shocked,” Wolfe, 56, said from her home in New York City. She describes herself as a musical renegade, with inspirations that come from folk, classical and rock, and said she hopes the award can inspire other musicians to follow dreams that take unconventional paths. — The Associated Press Popular war story wins Pulitzer for fiction Anthony Doerr wins $ 10K prize for ‘ imaginative, intricate’ novel By Hillel Italie Doerr ( above) wrote All the Light We Cannot See, which alternates brief chapters between a blind French girl and a young Nazi soldier.
