Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch," already among the most popular and celebrated novels of the past year, has won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction.The award Monday for general nonfiction went to Dan Fagin's "Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation," a chronicle of industrial destruction in a small New Jersey community that was praised by The New York Times as a "classic of science reporting". Even before the Pulitzer was announced Monday, it was in the top 40 on Amazon.com's best-seller list.The Pulitzer will likely ensure her place among the elite of contemporary fiction writers and make "The Goldfinch" a million seller."The Internal Enemy" has been cited as a worthy follow-up to Edmund Morgan's landmark "American Slavery, American Freedom," a story of the conflicting passions among white Virginians who both eloquently defended their own freedoms and suspiciously presided over the slaves who made their livelihoods possible.
