    just the 13th woman to win the Nobel since 1901. i think a diatribe is still in order…

    Hi, Didion! I came to your excellent blog through Servetus. I’m so happy for this, even if it means that my beloved Atwood will have to wait. I was wandering if anyone has thanked David Gilmour yet….Cheers, Movie.

    Obviously “wondering”…

    I was delighted when Doris Lessing won the Nobel Prize. She suffered years of being critiqued as a “primitive.”
    Munro is not really to my taste, but I am glad she won the prize.
