Maria Caruso’s “The Vacationers” (NMW 2004)

Maria Caruso has won the 15th New Millennium Nonfiction Prize for “The Vacationers.”

She will receive $1,000 and publication both online and in print.

A Note from the Author:

“I’ve shifted Eleanor Roosevelt’s idea about life, ‘The thing you think cannot do is the thing you must do,’ and applied it to my writing. I try to write about the things I think I can’t bear to write about.”

—Maria Caruso
