Wow, it is nearly Nobel Prize time again. Ladbrokes is offering 7/1 on Haruki Murakami; the money is short on Bob Dylan too, at 10/1. I don't understand how both Cormac McCarthy and Philip Roth can be 16/1: McCarthy is too trendy, and I think someone must have it in for Roth the way they used to for Graham Greene. Wouldn't you think that this might be the year for perennial favorite Adonis? If I could work some sort of parlay, he'd be part of it, maybe with Chinua Achebe (2-/1-- a pretty good price). This doesn't feel like Margaret Atwood's year, and 50/1 sounds about right.
