No Shortlist Required

Jhumpa Lahiri has won the world's richest short story prize, the Frank O'Connor award for about $55,000, for her collection of stories Unaccustomed Earth. Apparently, she so lapped the competition that the judges dispensed entirely with the formality of a shortlist. Which really sucks for the books that would've gotten the recognition of being shortlisted.
