The answer to the question “Who won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction?” is Paul Harding. His debut novel entitled Tinkers which was published on January 01, 2009 by Bellevue Literary Press containing 191 pages eventually won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2010, beating several other nominees such as: Daniyal Mueenuddin with the novel entitled In Other Rooms, Other Wonders, and Lydia Millet with the novel entitled Love in Infant Monkeys. Tinkers covers the story of George Washington Crosby and his father, Howard Crosby. George was dying and he remembers his father.
Howard was a tinker who sold household goods using a donkey-drawn cart and who also struggled epilepsy. The book was well received by critics with The Lost Angeles Times stating that “a writer describes something so well – snow, oranges, dirt – that you can smell it or feel it or sense it in the room.”
