Author Donna Tartt

Novelist Donna Tartt and playwright Annie Baker have won the Pulitzer Prize's most prestigious categories.  Filmmaker Laura Poitras also won for her NSA articles in collaboration with Glenn Greenwald.

Praised for its "Dickensian" scope, Tartt's urban epic, The Goldfinch, begins with a terrorist attack at New York's Met Museum. Now orphaned, ten-year-old Theo struggles to fend for himself on the streets of Manhattan while maintaining a connection to his deceased mother through a 17th-century painting he stole from the Met during the attack. 

Taking place a world away, Baker's finely observed interpersonal drama, The Flick, is set in a movie theater in central Massachusetts, where a group of movie-theater employees talk about what movie-theater employees talk about (rude customers, Kevin Bacon's oeuvre, the bane of digital film) while figuring out their personal and professional relationships to one another. 

The Flick will re-open at New York's Barrow Street Theater shortly.
