Toms River Wins Pulitzer Prize

Toms River

Random House LLC is proud to announce that Dan Fagin's Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation (Bantam), an astonishing work of investigative reporting about a small town ravaged by industrial pollution, has been awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in the General Nonfiction category. In the book, Fagin recounts the sixty-year saga of rampant pollution and inadequate oversight that made Toms River, New Jersey, a cautionary example for fast-growing industrial towns. Named one of the best books of the year by NPR and Kirkus Reviews, The New York Times called the book "a new classic of science reporting . . . a sober story of probability and compromise, laid out with the care and precision that characterizes both good science and great journalism."

Gary J. Bass's Blood Telegram: Nixon, Kissinger, and a Forgotten Genocide (Knopf) was a finalist in the General Nonfiction category (Paperback Available July 2014). For a full list of previous Random House Pulitzer Prize winners please click here.
