2019 Nobel Prize: My Guess

Though she’s only got bookies’ odds of 10/1, I have a feeling Olga Tokarczuk is going to nab the prize this year.

I don’t even know why I think that, except that I saw her name on a list (a list that has Anne Carson’s odds at 4/1), and thought about a book of hers book that’s just been released in translation called Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead. And. so.

I’ll follow up on Friday when the winner is announced.

Hahaha! I know, I know: who cares what I think?

(I really did laugh before I wrote “Hahaha!”)
