Just finished "Empire Falls" by Richard Russo, and I believe it won the Pulitzer for fiction. Great book, easy read, but a tad disappointed with the ending.
Also just finished "About a Boy" by Nick Hornby. Very entertaining and a page turner. I think I finished it in one day, but I had to stay up late to do it.
"I fought because I understood and could not bear to understand, that it was my destiny -- unlike that of my father, whose fate it was to hear the roar of the crowd -- to sit in the stands with most men and acclaim others. It was my fate, my destiny, my end, to be a fan."
