American writer, his first novel "Tinkers" won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for literature. After being rejected by several firms, a tiny publishing house took a chance with the novel in 2009. Only 7000 copies were initially published but the book garnered positive reviews and gained favor among independent bookstores. Late in 2009 Random House offered him a two-book contract and a few weeks after winning his Pulitzer, the Guggenheim Foundation offered him a fellowship.
