junot diaz just won the pulitzer prize for the brief wondrous life of oscar wao! i’m not sure why i’m so excited about this, but to tell the truth i have been sitting around the house all day waiting for the pulitzer announcement. maybe its because i went to vona and he is one of the founders (although i didn’t study with him). maybe because last week i picked up the novel because i just had a feeling. maybe because i applied to study with him this summer. maybe because i’m so damn impressed with writers who are brave on the page. it’s probably a bit of all of the above, but i’m tickled.
