    Award Nobel Prize in Literature 2017

    The Nobel Prize in Literature 2017 has been awarded to Kazuo Ishiguro "who in novels of great emotional force has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world".

    I'm laughing so hard. So the Nobel Library is reliable after all.

    Ew

    Was he even on the betting odds at all?

    Only seven novels and one work released in the last 12 years.

    I really can't stomach anyone saying Murakami or Atwood can't win considering Ishiguro's last two works were Fantasy and Sci Fi.

    I suppose Kazuo Ishiguro was strongly considered even last year but they decided to pick Dylan instead.

    And I loved that Redheadshadz' theory wound up working !

    Incredible. Book prices on Amazon just spiked. 160$ for an Ishiguro paperback, what a joke!

    Purchased the Buried Giant (for like 10$)
