Pulitzer Prize winners

The Pulitzer Prize for Fiction is awarded annually to a US writer writing about a subject related to US cultural life. Three finalists are usually selected, from which one is declared the winner. As such, it is probably the second most important global fiction prize after the Booker and an important resource for collectors and readers alike.
