Tinkers – Paul Harding – Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2010

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 26 November 2011

Tinkers (2009)(novel) By Paul Harding     Tinkers, Paul Harding’s first novel, and winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, is about the last days of an old, dying New Englander and the changeable mosaic of his last memories, of himself, his father, a tinker, and the rural and natural world of the past.  And it is in these last, poetic descriptions that Harding’s strength is brought to the fore: snow, light, ice on the limbs of trees, water, wood.  Though at times Harding pushes the poetic envelope a bit too far, Tinkers is quite a wonderful novel, about all that passes in memory, in drifts, swirls and eddies, in the time between tick and one’s last tock.

Remember That You Will Die, at the Rubin Museum of Art, includes this ivory head of General Wallenstein, made between 1750 and 1850

Ken Johnson has written an article entitled “Mulling Mortality, in the East and in the West” in the Art Review section of the Art & Design section of The New York Times (online) which looks at the exhibition entitled “Remember That You Will Die: Death Across Cultures”, an exhibition at the Rubin Museum of Art (150 West 17th Street, NYC) through 9 August 2010, which, through 82 works, highlights profound differences in what death means through different cultures and different epochs featuring traditional Tibetan objects, medieval and early Renaissance European pieces and one contemporary work, a video by the American artist Bill Viola entitled “Three Women”, being shown in NY for the first time.
