How could they miss Jorge Luis Borges?
I've been saying this for decades. The Nobels for Literature are mostly embarrassingly bad.
Heller, Salinger, Keroauc, Burroughs, and DeLillo also missed the list. But Falkner and Updike made it twice each.
I'll tell you what I'd give the Noble Prize to...an enormous whozeewhatsit!!!
it's 'bulgakov', not 'bulkagov'.
didn't tolstoy turn it down?
Iím surprised that Jimmie JJ DYNO-MITE! Walker never won the Nobel, considering what Alfred was famous for inventing.
@6, no Tolstoy was actually passed over for it.
Maybe so, Mr. Lucas, but I'd still like to have a Nobel Prize for Literature. Just 'cause.
Fortunately, Craig Lucas is not good enough nor quite bad enough to qualify for a Nobel.
