View Comments

(AP) – The late Manning Marable won the Pulitzer Prize for history Monday for “Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention,” a work he did not live to see to publication.

For the first time in 35 years, no fiction prize was given.

The play “Water by the Spoonful,” about a returning Iraq war veteran and by Quiara Alegria Hudes, won the drama prize.

The Pulitzer for biography went to “George F. Kennan: An American Life” by John Lewis Gaddis, and “Life on Mars” by Tracy K. Smith won the poetry prize.

The general nonfiction prize was given to “The Swerve: How the World Became Modern” by Stephen Greenblatt, while the music prize went to “Silent Night: Opera in Two Acts” by Kevin Puts.
