Pulitzer Prizes, 2008 (I)
Various and sundry bloggers have mentioned that The Rest is Noise was a nominated finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in general nonfiction, but I have not yet seen discussion of the fact that Gene Weingarten's Joshua-Bell-the-Busker story actually won a prize. I'm now in the position of saying to people who loved the story when it ran "well, it was badly flawed and was roundly criticized by classical music writers and bloggers." I would like to provide links to blog postings or articles about the story; if you have some handy, or remembering having your head your hands over it, please email me or post 'em here.
