Who do you guys think will be taking the prize this year?For me, its Jon Fosse, the greatest writer of our time.Don't forget that two writers will be getting the prize this time!
I honestly don't care anymore. They wasted one of those in a freaking folk singer.
unless he's an anglophone that is being spoonfed to students in literature departments, I simply do not care
After Bob "boomercore" Dylan, I don't particularly give a toss about the Nobel. Still rooting for Krasznahorkai.
I used to care about this lel...Also>beckett ripoff>goat
>>13853998Beckett + a touch of Bernhard (fosse’s translation work kinda ended up limiting his fiction work)
Someone from Asia (China or Japan) who never positioned himself about any political matter that may be a problem.
One American and one outside Europe/N. America. Maybe McCarthy and Thiong'o.
>>13853863And a jew no less. But they're overrepresented because they're smart and not because of ethnic nepotism.
>>13853852I hope Houellebecq does
>>13853852OKAY YOU FUCKIN C UCKSTHE WINNERS ARE:HOLLABACK GIRLANDOUR BELOVED TRANNY VOLLWOMANN(Houellebecq and Vollmann, for the mentally challenged)SCREENCAP THIS MOTHERFUCKER OR YOU WILL DIE PAINFULLY IN MANY YEARS FROM NOW.
>>13853852what's the best place to start with Fosse? Never heard of him
>>13853852Wont be an AmericanWon’t be hourllebecq (no chance)Won’t be KrasznahorkaiThey’ll probably choose an Asian or South American author.
>>13853852Nobel prize? More like cock sucking commie prize.
>>13856253Houllebecq was awarded one of the most prestigious merits in Europe, which is the Legion of Honour. Don't write him off so easily. He might not win this year but he will eventually.
PYNCHON FACE REVEAL (yes I saw the photos from this year)
Some female niggers.
what about murnane
>>13853852When would the prizes be announced?
>>13857588Who tf actually enjoys reading Gerald ? College teacher writing.
>>13853852Since there are two prizes this year one of them may very well be given to an american. Unfortunately, the academy being the way it is, that american writer will not be male. My guess is Joyce Carol Oates. Pynchon/DeLillo/McCarthy will never win, unfortunately.
>>13857599oct 10. i think å
>>13856547Gay homo man butt lover ''''''humour''''''
>>13857652>My guess is Joyce Carol Oates.I fucking hate her writing. (Who reads that woman, actually ? Older catladies ?)
>>13853852One prize will almost certainly go to an established european author like Ismail Kadare or Dag Solstad. This boards darlings - Houellebecq, Knausgaard, Krasznahorkai are all to young to get the nobel yet.The other prize will then probably go to an obscure european poet - possibly from Sweden - or some very established ethnic writer like Adunis or NgugiI doubt that an american will win this year, because the last two prizes went to anglosphere writers. But if an American does win its more likely to be Marilynne Robinson than it is Pynchon.
i've been waiting on krasznahorkai for a whileor pynchon
>>13857716Is Kadare still alive ? Solstad is meh but why not... college teacher writing.And people here keep posting krasznahorkai but I guess Peter Nadas (which is arguably more accomplished after Parallel Stories) doesn’t exist ?
>>13853852after that whole scandal they need to recover their woke points, they will probably award it to some fat black transvestite for its outstanding twitter feed
>>13853852better be J.M. Coetzee
>>13857756Is this bait ?
>>13856550>the most prestigious merits in Europe, which is the Legion of HonourI'm french, and I like to consider myself a patriot, but this just not true. A lot of nobody got it every year.
>>13857716> Dag SolstadDidn't even hit me that he could be a candidate for the prize. He actually just released a book, and he'll be visiting my local library next week so I'll actually get to see him! Would be fun to see him get the prize, even though I think it's a higher chance of Fosse getting it.Knausgård is definitely not getting it. That would be a major surprise, even though he might deserve it.
>>13857748> they will probably award it to some fat black transvestite for its outstanding twitter feedfucking kek
>>13857736Kadare is still alive but he's very old now - which is perfect if you consider the nobel as a reward for a lifes workThinking more about it I think Ishmael Reed stands a very good chance of winning the prize as well, especially because he keeps writing books and making headlines
>>13857875so just like the Nobel Prize? gotcha
>>13857986>Ishmael ReedAny work of his you could recommend? Would be appreciated. Give me the good stuff.
>>13857934>and he'll be visiting my local library next week so I'll actually get to see him!That’s pretty fucking cool actually. Where do you live, if I may ask ?
>>13858018Mumbo Jumbo is his best, most innovative book and probably the best one to read first. Most people compare his work to pynchon - and pynchon gives Reed a shoutout in GR - and Mumbo Jumbo is very pynchonesque in terms of conspiracies, alternate history etc.Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down and Flight To Canada are also interesting, but not as good.I haven't read Conjugating Hindi - his 2018 book - but I've heard good things about it.
If Houellebecq doesn't win a nobel prize, the world is retarded
>>13858026Sandefjord, Solstad's birthplace, but he doesn't live here anymore (I think he switches between Berlin and Oslo). There's even a street named after him downtown. At the local high school, some teachers know Solstad personally, and he has many times come as a guest to Norwegian classes. I even saw him in the halls last semester, but didn't quite recognize him (and was in a mild shock) untill it was too late to approach him.
>>13853852>caring about political virtue signalling event
>>13858307>There's even a street named after him downtown.Haha the man’s a rockstar wtf. That’s great. He looks hard NOT to recognize.
>>13858330> He looks hard NOT to recognize.Yeah, you're right. However, I was just out of class because I needed to go to the toilet, and as I was walking back to class I saw him in the hall talking with two other teachers. I don't think anybody who knows who Solstad is would be prepared for that haha. He is quite the character as well. If you know norwegian, it's quite funny to watch interviews of him from the 80s and 90s.
>>13855606Vollmann has a better chance than Houellebecq. His works are extensive and cover a wide breadth of different voices/topics. MH is just sadbois in Europe and Asia
>>13858378Vollman is too black metal for the Nobel. Forget that.
