How sad. No Fiction Pulitzer Awarded for 2012.

For the first time since 1977, no fiction piece was awarded a prize. Nominated by the jurors as finalists were Denis Johnson’s Train Dreams, Karen Russell‘s Swamplandia! and David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King. But the board, which consists of 18 voting members and reads all the final entries, couldn’t agree on a winner—a majority vote is needed.
