Ah, many, many congratulations to Annette Gordon-Reed! Very exciting news for her and the entire community who work in race and history.

And to Doug Blackmon, too. We spoke a little about Slavery by Another Name here:

It would be rather interesting to compare winning bid prices for these books on eBay over the last three weeks with the next three weeks. One would expect a "bump" in price, particularly for first editions.

I have Strout's earlier book "Abide With Me" on my shelf (along with at least 100 other unread novels). Now I'm tempted to expedite its review. I feel sorta like an articles editor!

I was fortunate enough to see "Ruined" a month or so ago at Manhattan Theatre Club. It is an outstanding piece--beautifully written, emotion- and thought-provoking, and, in the production I saw, incredibly well acted. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Two more things: I see from the Chronicle that Elizabeth Strout is a professor at Queens University Charlotte, NC:

Also, she has a law degree from Syracuse University.

Quite a year for lawyers and Pulitzers!

What's up with that second sentence in Abide with Me? Did some editor miss something?
