Penguin Random House 2014 Pulitzer Prize Winner


The Pulitzer Prize Boards have honored Penguin Group and Random House books more than 120 times over the past ten decades with America’s most revered awards for Letters. On April 14, that cherished tradition continued as TOMS RIVER: A story of Science and Salvation by Dan Fagin (Bantam HC, E-Book, & RH Audio in the U.S. & Canada) was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction.

Perhaps fittingly, the 2014 Pulitzer winners were announced on the 75th publication anniversary of John Steinbeck’s THE GRAPES OF WRATH, one of the most beloved of our Pulitzer honorees.

Please join us in congratulating Dan Fagin, his editor Ryan Doherty, and our publishing colleagues on becoming the newest addition to this singular, glorious piece of Penguin Random House publishing History.

Penguin Random House’s Pulitzer recognition also extends internationally. This year’s Fiction award winner, THE GOLDFINCH by Donna Tartt (Little Brown) is published by our sister publishers in two languages in multiple countries: as DER DISTELFINK in Germany by Verlagsgruppe Random House’s Goldmann (HC & E-Book) imprint, and as EL JILGUERO in Spain and Latin America by Grupo Editorial’s Lumen imprint (TP & E-Book).

In addition, Penguin Random House Canada distributes History Pulitzer winner, THE INTERNAL ENEMY: Slavery and War in Virginia by Alan Taylor (W.W. Norton).

We are honored to support the success of our Pulitzer winners across our territories. Hearty congratulations to our authors and publishing colleagues.
