Pat Ryan’s book, “Marilyn & the New York Itch,” has won second place in the 2017 Del Sol Press Prize for First Novel. This is the first work of fiction for the former New York Times editor and feature writer, who has two story collections in the works: stories inspired by Manhattan’s literary ghosts, and by life in a New England mill town in the 1940s-1960s.
