NEW YORK (AP) - Steven Millhauser, a Pulitzer Prize winning novelist, has received a $20,000 award for short stories.

Millhauser was the recipient Wednesday night of the Story Prize for his collection “We Others.”

In 1997, he won the Pulitzer for his novel “Martin Dressler.”

Two other award-winning authors were finalists Wednesday: Don DeLillo for “The Angel Esmeralda” and Edith Pearlman for “Binocular Vision,” which recently won the fiction prize from the National Book Critics Circle. DeLillo and Pearlman each received $5,000.

Past winners of the Story Prize, founded in 2004, include Mary Gordon and Tobias Wolff.
