The Nobel Prize in Literature

Yes, it’s coming up on that time again and the odds-makers are coming alive with their predictions. The is the list of authors I have seen mentioned for the honor:

  • Haruki Murakami
  • Mo Yan
  • Cees Nooteboom
  • Ismail Kadare
  • Chinua Achebe
  • Dacia Maraini
  • Mircea Cartarescu
  • Merethe Lindstrøm
  • Leonard Nolens
  • Adonis
  • Thomas Pynchon
  • Alice Munro
  • Cormac McCarthy
  • Philip Roth

Who do you think will win? Who should be on the list that is missing? Personally, I think Murakami will win but he wouldn’t be my choice if I was asked to make the selection. It would be a tough decision but I think I would go with Ismail Kadare.

There’s a lot more to the Nobel Prize than literature and dynamite, so take a peak at the official Nobel Prize web site.
