What is going on? This story is becoming common these days. Why is it that the best novels are the ones that can't get published while plenty of crap novels gets published every day.
If it's true that Bellevue only printed a small number of paperbacks, how they got the attention of the Pulitzer committee is a very good question.
: It's true. It sat in a drawer for three years before tiny Bellevue Literary Press was willing to print a few paperbacks of it.
: : I heard Tinkers was turned down by every major publisher.
: : : We've all been reading about how a tiny, specialized publisher (Bellevue Literary Press) published a Pulitzer prize-winning novel (Tinkers by Paul Harding), but how did they manage to get the attention of the Pulitzer committee?
