The Pulitzer Prizes were announced at Columbia University on Monday, and unlike last year, a novelist is one of the winners.

Among the 21 awards handed out was the fiction prize to writer Adam Johnson for his novel "The Orphan Master's Son."

Last year, no prize was awarded for fiction for the first time in over three decades.

The New York Times received four prizes for its investigative, explanatory, international and feature work.

Established in the will of news publisher Joseph Pulitzer, the prize has been awarded since 1917 in the fields of journalism, letters, drama and music.
