    Hai ragione, amico. Ma non sono troppo ottimista!

    Haha if so, next year remember to root for someone you really can't stand!

    Blameless and Microcosmos are equally good. But if you want to appreciate his stature, I suggest you to read his academic works. He's an hell of an essayist!

    2017 Female Writer
    2019 Male Photographer
    2020 Female Writer

    She might be trying to balance the number of female writers and male writers by sabotaging the latter.
    LOL.

    Only 20'...I can't take it anymore.

    After Dylan's fiasco, this year I wasn't that enthusiast about the prize anymore. But you guys literally overturned that feeling and I had real fun in these days! Thanks for that.

    On the sci-fi Horace Engdahl answered the question if a winner is aloud to write "bad books" and still win the Nobel in a talk show a couple of years ago and he brought up the sci-fi of Lessing as an example (together with some books from Grass I think) as literature he didn't understand but that if writers weren't aloud to write bad books also there would barely be anyone to give the prize to.

    The Ladbrokes list has gone again - Atwood led at 7/2, from Ngugi wa Thiong'o (4/1) and Murakami (5/1).

    Does the "Did you know?" bit on their website change from time to time? Because now there are a lot of the clues posted before: only 14 women have won the literature prize, the oldest and youngest winner... and also the fact that 4 Literature Prizes have been divided between two persons. A shared prize between a young and old writer could be quite interesting.

    I can still access it. Delillo moved up to 10/1 (from 14/1, so nothing shocking). Some last minute betting is going on.

    To me, this year it will be Marias, Adonis or Wa Thiongo'o

    So far, I'd say: El-Saadawi, Marķas, Thiongo'o/Farah, Ko Un, Malouf.

    But I hope I'm wrong, since I'm still rooting for Adonis and Magris!

    Like it or not if it is Atwood it will be the perfect ocasion for them to bring back the general public's attention to the prize, I mean, after Dylan and all...
