From Iraq to Lebanon, Shadid sets the standards and the rest of us try to live up to them. His Night Draws Near was a classic.
“Overdue”? Shadid already won one in 2004.
Granted, he’s so brilliant that you could call it overdue if he doesn’t win every year, but a sense of fair play suggests that at least a few Pulitzers be left for the other guys. :-)
Oh shit, I didn’t know he won before. Still, good to see him re-up.
