A Pulitzer: What is it Exactly?

Junot Diaz was on The Colbert Report last night. Today The New York Observer linked to the clip and cross-referenced Diaz's triffid allusion -- a reference which spurred Colbert and Diaz to some (cute) bonding over their shared geekiness. If you missed it last night, check it out now!

That might be the first time "cane field" and "triffid" were used in the same sentence. Although reviewers kvetch about the Spanish words/phrases in the book, I thought that the sci-fi references were another "foreign language" altogether.
