A curiosity emerged yesterday with the announcement of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize awards: No prize was given this year for fiction.

That means Denis Johnson, a North Idaho author whose Train Dreams was shortlisted as one of three finalists, will have to wait for another shot at the prize. 

The last time Pulitzer judges declined to award a fiction winner was in 1977, according to the Daily Beast. Check their write-up of the flap here.
