Here’s a link to a  New Yorker piece by Avi Steinberg  joking on the Pulitzer Prize failing to choose a fiction winner this year.  I hope it’s a decent example of what I was trying to say earlier in the week about humor not being a diversion but an immersion: if you don’t care much about modern literary fiction, this won’t be at all funny to you; but if you already do care, it will probably deepen your confusion with the committee while simultaneously helping you vent your frustration through laughter.
