Pulizer Prize

Went looking for info about the fiction award.  This is the 11th time that no award was given, the last was in 1977.  The 3 finalists this year are The Pale King, David Foster Wallace, Swamplandia, Karen Russell, and Train Dreams, Denis Johnson.  It hasn't always been because of a lack of consensus, and of course the reason for the non award this year is not elaborated.

Anyone have ideas about whether you want to have these three books as the nomination sometime?
