On NPR’s Morning Edition, Pulitzer fiction juror, Susan Larson says that the jurors were “shocked .. angry … and very disappointed” that there was no winner. She says they jury would have been happy if any one of the three finalists had been been chosen.
How can that be? It seems the Pulitzer Board reviews the juror’s votes and makes the final decision. Since there wasn’t a majority, they decided not to award a prize this year.
