Nobel Literature Prize Goes to Doris Lessing

lessig.jpgA very nice choice, if I do say so myself!


  1. “The most stupid, ill-educated and nasty woman can rubbish the nicest, kindest and most intelligent man and no-one protests.”

    You have to love that. Especially when she used “rubbish” as a verb.

  2. Her reaction to reporters was hilarious — “Oh, Christ … I couldn’t care less,” according to an AP story.

  3. How come no Roth? Or Delillo? When? Why not?

    Because other people can have valid aesthetic opinions that are different from yours. Roth or Delillo may receive the Nobel Prize in the future, but there’s nothing automatic about it.
