Jhumpa Lahiri won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

As per Wikipedia “Nilanjana Sudeshna “Jhumpa” Lahiri (born on July 11, 1967) is an American author. Lahiri has been selected as the winner of the 29th PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in the Short story. Lahiri’s debut short story collection Interpreter of Maladies (1999) won the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and her first novel, The Namesake (2003), was adapted into the popular film of the same name. She was born Nilanjana Sudeshna but goes by her nickname Jhumpa. Lahiri was a member of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities, appointed by U.S. President Barack Obama. (She resigned from the President’s Committee in August, 2017, co-signing a letter of resignation that said in reference to President Trump, “Ignoring your hateful rhetoric would have made us complicit in your words and actions.” Her book The Lowland, published in 2013, was a nominee for the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Award for Fiction. Lahiri is currently a professor of creative writing at Princeton University.”
