ey814 - Aug 24, 2015 @JohnZ You're right, Ragtime was in the years before they started announcing 'true' finalists, I think I meant to type Billy Bathgate, since it was a true finalist.There is a chance that she was, in fact, taken advantage of by the publisher and lawyer; on the other hand, authors who pass away often have their work published and so this may have surfaced, no matter her wishes, after Lee's death regardless.He could have cut the adjectives down and had a stronger novel.The NPR review of the book by Roxane Gay (which is titled "A Compelling Plot Gives Way to Farce in Franzen's 'Purity put me in mind of exactly what puts me off of his work."The Incarnations which will not be eligible for the Pulitzer, sounds incredibly promising.Grahammyers - May 15, 2015 @ey814 i read that, but Franzen is one of my favorites.This seems true of Geronimo Johnson (who said at a reading that he wrote two novels after "hold it till it hurts"-of which "braggsville" was one (so expect another from him relatively soon, I guess).From what I've read about Watchman,.Not that it should matter, but given the responses to some of Ed's posts, I think it's prudent to let up on the condemnation a bit.
Why is Harold writing to him?
Hopefully I can find a signed first.
So, to some degree, both systems are drawing information from the same sources.That will be pretty close to the end of the process.Likes: 1 ey814 - Oct 1, 2015 @brakiasaurus Washington Post gave it a good review.Ey814 - Jan 18, 2016 @brakiasaurus I think it would be hard to give it the Pulitzer.If the full board really is to read all of the nominated finalists in totality, I would hope they would have about 3 months to.I don't understand why "The Road" won, and we have already argued over my disbelief that Lee Martin's novel would have been a finalist.The best books I've recently read have been nonfiction: "Between the World and Me" and "The Sixth Extinction"-both of which are wonderful and also heartbreaking and important.By that I mean, every major character (the four musketeers, particularly) and many minor characters (the Henry Youngs, etc.) become wildly successful.A writer, after all, must first write for him- or herself.Critics, too, have shown a willingness to fault popular authors and titles, like the misogyny in Jonathan Franzen's purity.But what I felt, as a result, was that I was reading the notes to what might have become a novel.For the novel Ed wrote of with such admiration was written by a man who is gay (Bill Clegg and it has also been praised by another man who is gay (Michael Cunningham who said he read it in a night, woke up the following.Likes: 1 brakiasaurus - May 19, 2015 @EdParks @brakiasaurus Bookworm is a friggin' treasure.
