The UK and Canadian editions were both published in 1993 and precede the U.S. edition which was published in 1994. The UK and Canadian editions have the same jacket art and are of similar size, and both were printed and bound in the UK.

The U.S. edition has different cover art and is larger. Because the U.S. edition was published a year later (1994), it was eligible to win the Pulitzer in 1995 even though it was first published in 1993.



The Stone Diaries won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
