NEW YORK -- Adam Johnson's The Orphan Master's Son has won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, restoring a high literary honour a year after no fiction award was given.

Ayad Akhtar's Disgraced won for drama and Fredrik Logevall's Embers of War for history. The biography winner was Tom Reiss' The Black Count. Gilbert King's Devil in the Grove won for general nonfiction and Sharon Olds' Stag's Leap for poetry.

For music, the winner was Caroline Shaw's Partita for 8 Voices.

Some of the most talked about books of 2012 were bypassed, including Robert Caro's The Passage of Power and Katherine Boo's Behind the Beautiful Forevers.
