message 1: by Nathan (new)

Nathan Moore Redeeming Love isn't a Pulitzer Prize winner.


message 2: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Dec 29, 2011 11:44AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's not a biography or autobiography, either, for that matter!

Removed.

Also removed: Me by Me: The Pets.com Sock Puppet Book.


message 3: by Brenda (new)

Brenda How many of these are by women or about women??? I thought women made up 1/2 of the population of the earth ... shouldn't half of these be about remarkable women?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Eh, it's the Pulitzer committee. The fiction branch managed not to give their award to a woman for 20 years (early 40s-early 60s).


message 5: by Dani Bauer (new)

Dani Bauer Team of Rivals isn't a Pulitzer winner


message 6: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jan 25, 2015 09:07PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Correct you are; Doris Kearns Goodwin is a winner of the Pulitzer, but for No Ordinary Time.

Removed.


message 7: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Robert Dallek's An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963 is not a Pulitzer winner. I thought perhaps Dallek had won a Pulitzer for one of his other books, but he has not.


message 8: by Rosie (new)

Rosie Hansen Very disappointed in how few women are represented
