Congratulations to J.M. Coetzee for winning the 2003 Nob(el)le Prize of literature. Of course, being a Nostradamus-like figure that I am, he was one of the four writers I highlighted for the Noble gong last year, (even if I couldn’t spell his name.)
When I have a spare moment, which will be some time in November, I’ll blog a little more on this wonderful writer. But as time is of the premium, you’ll have to scan the press release and hear what the Noble Academy said.
PS – This article is interesting if anyone is interested in the politics of the Nobel prize. It was written back in 1998, the year that my thesis topic Jose Saramago, finally won literature’s grand poobah award
