Met zijn Sontag heeft Benjamin Moser de Pulitzer Prize 2020 voor beste biografie binnengesleept.

An authoritatively constructed work told with pathos and grace, that captures the writer’s genius and humanity alongside her addictions, sexual ambiguities and volatile enthusiasms.

Colson Whitehead sleepte de prijs binnen in de categorie fictie voor The Nickel Boys.

A spare and devastating exploration of abuse at a reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida that is ultimately a powerful tale of human perseverance, dignity and redemption.

In de categorie poëzie ging de prijs naar The Tradition van Jericho Brown.

A collection of masterful lyrics that combine delicacy with historical urgency in their loving evocation of bodies vulnerable to hostility and violence.
