The Pulitzer Prizes were announced Monday. The winners in Letters are below. Knopf says they are reprinting 100,000 copies of the Egan trade paperback with the Pulitzer seal for delivery next week. Released in late March, the reprints will bring that edition up to 185,000 copies in print. A small reprint of 15,000 copies delivered yesterday, with a small amount of stock being reserved for indie stores. Spokesman Paul Bogaards says GOON SQUAD has sold approximately 25,000 digital copies since its original release, and he notes that Anchor expects an uplift for the four Egan backlist books as well.
