Pulitzers Take II: Congo wins (sort of)

April 21, 2009

So I took my Pulitzer-day swipe at newspaper publishers yesterday, and today I am in slightly better humor and want to congratulate Lynn Nottage on her Pulitzer for “Ruined,” a play about sexual violence in Congo.

Anyone…anyone…?)

I haven’t seen “Ruined,” but I’ve heard amazing things. So go buy tickets, before it moves to Broadway and you can’t afford to see it.

(And a shout out to Amy Nutt, whose almost-Pulitzer story was so popular that lots of people searching for it wound up at my blog! If I only I were making money off of hits somehow…)
