1969 Pulitzer Prize For Fiction

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

House Made of Dawn,which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1969, tells the story of a young American Indian named Abel, home from a foreign war and caught between two worlds: one his father's, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons and the harsh beauty of the land; the other of industrial America, a goading him into a compulsive cycle of dissipation and disgust.

Review:

"Momaday writes with virility and vigor, yet each word seems skillfully chosen. His passages are molded with loving care and expert professional style. The reader can easily identify with the characters and understand their emotional depths. This is certainly an exceptional talent and one I hope will be used often." Charles Dollen

Review:

"[Momaday] has considerable descriptive power....Yet the rhetoric is a bit too facile, smacks somewhat of campus creative-writing, and on occasion creates a nebulosity opaque enough to count as self-parody. One can understand the Pulitzer prize jury's being bowled over by it now and then; one is none the less surprised to note that it stayed mesmerized long enough by Mr. Momaday's bittern-boomings to award his book the prize." Times Literary Supplement
