nobel 2010 ?

Over the weekend i heard a podcast about jewish book week ,and an interview with the israeli writer Amos Oz where it was suggest he may be a future nobel winner .he wasn’t sure if he would win but would be honoured if he did ,In recent years the winners have been relatively unknown in britain ,but hugely succesful in their own country’s people like Hertha Muller ,J M G Le Clezio and Orhan Pamuk .After a run of four european winners i feel it ll be a non european writer this time round .here are a few i ve in mind

america’s

  • Michael Ondaatje -the Canadian has written many great novels and is well-respected
  • Carlos fuentes-mexicos most prolific novelist of the last twenty years
  • h c Moya -outspoken houndrian writer
  • Mario Vargas Llosa – the peruvian has a wonderful body of work behind him

asia

  • Murkami – the japanese writer should win one day would be great time to win with new novel due late this year
  • Rohinton mistry-respected indian writer
  • Peter Carey australia greatest living novelist

africa

  • Al AswanY – popular egyptian writer
  • Tsitsi Dangaremga -zimbawian writer would be a fresh choice
