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.

Iím surprised that Jimmie JJ DYNO-MITE! Walker never won the Nobel, considering what Alfred was famous for inventing.

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.
