Favorites for the Nobel Lit prize, according to Ladbrokes: Adonis, the Syrian poet, at 4/1, Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer at 7/1 and Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami at 8/1. There has been a surge in punters wanting some Bob Dylan action: the Bard of Hibbing is currently 10/1. I'd be down with Murakami, but I think every year that passes without recognition for Philip Roth is another year where the Academy gets it wrong.

UPDATE: in the time it took to write this Dylan has gone to 8/1. If I were smarter than I am I'd be looking for an economist and playing an exacta.
