And don’t forget: non-journalism Pulitzers.
- For fiction, Tinkers (Paul Harding)
- For drama, Next to Normal (music by Tom Kitt, book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey)
- For history, Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World (Liaquat Ahamed)
- For biography, The First Tycoon: The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt (T.J. Stiles)
- For poetry, Versed (Rae Armantrout)
