I see the winner of the Pulitzer prize for fiction is a 300-page short story collection-slash- novel : Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout. I am always tempted by the Pulitzer winner. But I hesitate to sign up for this book which although no doubt excellently written seem to tred the the well travelled literary ground of sad people in small town, probably travelling through cruelty and ennui to end with a slightly ambiguous tragedy.

That and it is $14, which is a lot to pay for a paperback.
