I’m ecstatic that Jennifer Egan has won the 2011 Fiction Pulitzer for A Visit from the Goon Squad. I just finished it and absolutely loved it. I’m reticent to re-read books generally (because there are so many I haven’t even read once!) but this was one I felt an IMMEDIATE impulse to re-read as SOON as I got to the last sentence. 

Read her response to the win here.

All 2011 Pulitzer winners are 30% off at Powell’s right now! I took a nice long walk in the sunshine today and got my Goon Squad, as well as Other People We Married by Emma Straub (not on sale, but whatevs), neither of which I can start until I finish du Maurier’s Rebecca. That’s something you can file under Good Problems To Have, I guess.  

I want to read this! Bookmarking for iPad book purchase…
