2015 PULITZER PRIZE WINNERS

The 99th edition of the most important prize in American journalism has its winners. The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina was awarded the most important title, for Public Service, while staff and the New York Times has been rewarded in three different categories.  The Pulitzers' letters, drama and arts categories recognized Anthony Doerr's novel "All the Light We Cannot See", Stephen Adly Guirgis's play "Between Riverside and Crazy", the musical composition of Julia Wolfe, "Anthracite Fields", as well as poetry by Gregory Pardlo.

The Post and Courier of Charleston, a newspaper that has a staff of about 80 journalists and a daily circulation of 85,000, won the most prestigious award, for the series “Till Death Do Us Part” about the deaths caused by abuse from domestic law enforcement.

All the Light We Cannot See, a beautiful, ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II, won the fiction Pulitzer prize, and recognition for its author, Anthony Doerr.

David I. Kertzer won the award for biography with his gripping story of Pope Pius XI's secret relations with Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of Fascism in Europe. This groundbreaking work is based on seven years of research in the Vatican and Fascist archives, including reports from Mussolini's spies at the highest levels of the Catholic Church.

The 2015 Pulizter Prize also honored Elizabeth A. Fenn's history "Encounters at the Heart of the World: A History of the Mandan People," and Elizabeth Kolbert's nonfiction work The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History as the author combines brilliant field reporting, the history of ideas and the work of geologists, botanists and marine biologists to tell the most interesting stories of a dozen species.
