The 2012 Pulitzer Prize Winners
Two of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize Winners worth taking a look at are Life on Mars
by Tracy K. Smith (I saw her at the 2008 Dodge Poetry Fest) for Poetry and the Non-Fiction prize winner Stephen Greenblatt's The Swerve: How the World Became Modern
"Life on Mars," by Tracy K. Smith (Graywolf Press), a collection of bold, skillful poems, taking readers into the universe and moving them to an authentic mix of joy and pain.
"The Swerve: How the World Became Modern," by Stephen Greenblatt (W.W. Norton and Company), a provocative book arguing that an obscure work of philosophy, discovered nearly 600 years ago, changed the course of history by anticipating the science and sensibilities of today.
I've got too many books on my "To Read" list again
Has anyone out there read any of this year's winners (espeically these two)?http://www.pulitzer.org/awards/2012
