That's kind of funny. Imagine being so blasé about winning the Nobel Prize!
What time is it in England? It's about 6:45 AM here.
It's just turned 12 noon.
They seem to be quite a political organization, and react to the temperament of the time very explicitly with their choices.
I make it a habit of looking at lesser-known writers, but many of those prize-winners are too obscure/boring for even my taste.
There are rather too many Scandanavian writers whom no-one outside Scandanavia has ever heard of.
And what were they thinking awarding the prize to Winston Churchill?
At 88 I think she's won the right to be unimpressed.
That's so beautiful!
Now I need to read The Golden Notebook
you do. it's really wonderful.
I must get hold of a copy.
she looks like a wild woman on the news... wonderful... makes me like her even more!
It's been 20 years or more since I read anything of hers. Time to do some catching up, maybe.
Not only a great writer but a great human being.
That was unbearably endearing-- "it's a Royal Flush, ok?"
I laughed. She's my new hero.
She's quite something, isn't she?
And now I'm feeling bad that I haven't read more of her books.
I haven't read any of her books, but that was a brilliant interview. (I liked the random shot of the man with his arm in a sling cradling a Jerusalem artichoke.) She reminds me of my prep school Latin teacher.
I love it when people in the public eye don't give a damn. I love the naturalness of her reaction.
I posted about her in my own blog. She's the kind of elderly I aspire to, if I live that long.
Oh yeah. If I make 88 I want to be just like that.
Interesting. If you get to be very old you can be as rude and abrasive and curmudgeonly as you like and people just go, "Oh isn't that sweet!"
