Great Reads: Pulitzer Prize Winners

The Pulitzer Prize winners were announced on May 9th recognizing excellence in journalism, books, drama, and music across 22 categories.

Here are the 2022 winners available to borrow with your Livingston Library card:

Fiction

The Netanyahus  An Account Of A Minor And Ultimately Even Negligible Episode In The History Of A Very Famous Family by Joshua Cohen

Mixing fiction with non-fiction, the campus novel with the lecture, this is a wildly inventive, genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics.  Ruben Blum, a Jewish historian-but not an historian of the Jews-is co-opted onto a hiring committee to review the application of an exiled Israeli scholar specializing in the Spanish Inquisition. When Benzion Netanyahu shows up for an interview, family unexpectedly in tow, Blum plays the reluctant host, to guests who proceed to lay waste to his American complacencies.

History

Covered With Night : A Story Of Murder And Indigenous Justice In Early America by Nicole Eustace

An immersive tale of the killing of a Native American man and its far-reaching consequences for Colonial America.  In the summer of 1722, on the eve of a conference between the Five Nations of the Iroquois and British-American colonists, two colonial fur traders brutally attacked an Indigenous hunter in colonial Pennsylvania. The crime set the entire mid-Atlantic on edge, with many believing that war was imminent. Frantic efforts to resolve the case created a contest between Native American forms of justice, centered on community, forgiveness, and reparations, and an ideology of harsh reprisal, based on British law, that called for the killers’ execution.

Cuba : An American History by Ada Ferrer

An original and compelling history, spanning five centuries, of the island that became an obsession for many presidents and policy makers, transforming how we think about the U.S. in Latin America, and Cuba in American society.

Biography

Chasing Me To My Grave : An Artist’s Memoir Of The Jim Crow South by Winfred Rembert

A searing first-person illustrated account of an artist’s life during the 1950s and 1960s in an unreconstructed corner of the deep South–an account of abuse, endurance, imagination, and aesthetic transformation.

General Nonfiction

Invisible Child : Poverty, Survival & Hope In An American City by Andrea Elliott

An affecting, deeply reported account of a girl who comes of age during New York City’s homeless crisis–a portrait of resilience amid institutional failure that successfully merges literary narrative with policy analysis.
