It's almost time for the Nobels in literature to be announced, and a British bookmaker has laid down odds on who will win in the wide open field.
(The announcement date is always kept secret, but sometime in October.)
The New Yorker has a short but fun post about it.
None of my faves are there. Denis Johnson, please.
Or better, my late, great mentor Lucia Berlin--a little-known treasure of American short stories.
In my dreams.
(BTW, who wrote that wikipedia entry on her? Haha. I know, but I can't say.)
Who would you like to see win it?
