Egan wins Pulitzer Prize

goon squad.jpgNot only has Jennifer Egan won the Tournament of Books and the National Book Critics Circle Award, it was announced on Monday that she has also won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for A Visit from the Goon Squad. Congratulations to the author on her accumulating accolades...I think it's time I add this one to the to-be-read pile.
