Literary Writer Work Review: ‘The Last Dance’

Author Michael Pollan, who wrote the book “The Big Lebowski” with John Travolta, will be honored at the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction on Thursday with a $10,000 gift to the American Library Association.

The award, given to an individual who has contributed a novel to the bestseller list, will go to the recipient, according to the association’s website.

“He has inspired millions of readers with his vivid and engaging writing, and his impact on our culture has been profound,” association president and chief executive Harvey Weinstein said in a statement.
