The OLM Quiz: Nobel Season!

By (October 1, 2011) No Comment

Nobel Season!

Ah, October. Time for the Nobels to be handed out! The Nobel Prizes are exactly like the Oscars, except they're for scientists, plus one economist and (for our purposes) one author a year, and Joan Rivers won't be making fun of the off-the-shoulder number Mario Vargas Llosa's planning to wear. They don't mess around with technical awards or a Best Female Writer and a Best Male Writer or any of that claptrap. One writer gets one prize, and everyone else in the world has to stay alive another year and hope for the best.

I don't have a feel for who's on the inside track to win the Nobel for Literature this year. I'd put a dollar down on Margaret Atwood, Philip Roth and Carlos Fuentes as far as the North American contingent, but I'm sure I'm missing someone. Who do you think should be getting one?

Oh, and enjoy the quiz. It may not have a strict theme, but there's certainly a slight Halloweenish bent to the proceedings this time round.
