2010 Pulitzer Winner – 3rd Annual Bermont Distinguished Visitor

Paul Harding won the Pulitzer Prize for his debut novel Tinkers, and his recent 2013 novel Enon has inspired comparable praise. In the New York Times Mark Slouka wrote: “One might have to go as far back as Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping to find a first novel that declared itself with such authority. Harding’s associative flights—his twisting, turning lyricism—were stunning, his ability to stress the physical world into extended metaphor downright Melvillean…In Enon, Harding’s gifts are again everywhere on display.” Tinkers also won the PEN Bingham Prize, and inspired the following citation: “An exquisite novel, at once fresh and hauntingly familiar, simple and profound.”
Paul Harding is the 2014-15 Bermont Fellowship Distinguished Visiting Writer. He lives with his family outside of Boston, and currently teaches at University of Iowa MFA Workshop.
