On a Very Pleasant Note

| | Comments (3)

It is very satisfying to see someone as talented, capable, and interesting as Doris Lessing has actually attracted the Swedish Academy's attention. I guess I should note as well--how highly unusual.

I've always admired the contours of Ms. Lessing's fiction even when I haven't particularly cared for the story or the idea. A fine and interesting writer at all times.

Brava, Ms. Lessing, and well done academy (for a change).

I had read in a Yahoo! article about a week ago that some of the candidates for the literature Nobel included Australian poet Les Murray and ... American novelist Philip Roth.

Dear Dylan,

Given at least one of those choices, this is particularly good news. I don't know if I am familiar with Les Murray.
