Pulitzer Prize: Nastiness Wins

Robin Givhan, who last summer infamously ridiculed the dress of Chief Justice John Roberts' wife and children, has just won a Pulitzer Prize for criticism.

Apparently the members of the Pulitzer Committee are unable to tell the difference between legitimate "criticism" and mean-spirited attacks.

Update: Betsy Newmark recites the details regarding some of Givhan's more outrageous columns.

Congratulations to Betsy's Page for being named Blog of the Week by Power Line!

What do you know about the fiction winner, March, besides what it says in the news article?

Don't know much more than the bare-bones description in the article, that the novel is told from the POV of Mr. March, who's a relatively minor character in LITTLE WOMEN. (The idea reminds me somewhat of ROSENKRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD!) I've heard good things about it, and that's about it! Would love to know the opinions of anyone who's read it.
