Shepard won for his collection Like You'd Understand, Anyway. Jim is presumably happy that he won the award, but it sure doesn't pay like the Alfaguara prize, which comes with a payday of $175,000. This one pays a measly $20,000. Of course, he would have had to write Like You'd Understand, Anyway, in Spanish, so that might've been a problem.
