MacArthur Geniuses Pop Quiz

Pop quiz time!  What do the following writers have in common: Deborah Eisenberg, Edwidge Danticat, and Heather McHugh.

(a) They are the winners of the literary MacArthur "genius grant" award;
(b) Lindsay-with-an-A has never read any of them;
(c) Lindsay-with-an-A has never heard of any of them; or
(d) All of the above.
If you guessed "(d) All of the above," pat yourself on the back because you're correct.

Honestly, do any of you wish that you could know ahead of time who would win prestigious awards so you can read their books ahead of time and therefore have something noteworthy to say about the winners?  How am I supposed to catch up on all of the classics I've never read AND read all of the contemporary grreats?  It's incredibly aggravating.
