Hurray for Alice!

Postby LMGilbert » Thu Oct 10, 2013 3:13 pm

Absolutely thrilled at the news of Alice Munro's Nobel prize for literature. The first Canadian woman ever, and one of only about 13 women ever.

ditto that!

as far as i can tell, the only other canadian-born nobelist in literature [among the 20 canadian laureates] was saul bellow, but since he lived in the US from age 8, is considered more an american author, sad to say...

Yes, congratulations to Alice Munro. But every year that Joyce Carol Oates gets bypassed is a disappointment.

Good for Alice, but like many, I think she won because the committee was afraid of raising a stink with Muslims, just as they were with Salmon Rushdie. The Nobel is usually a political prize, not one of merit.
