But just maybe you’ll beat the odds

If you find yourself in a sporting mood, you can place a bet on who will win the Nobel Prize for Literature.  I personally like Alice Munro’s 20/1 odds for taking the award, though Haruki Murakami’s 10/1 make him the safer bet.

    I would love to see W.S. Merwin’s name get mentioned in all the Nobel talk. His translation work alone should be enough to merit serious consideration for the award.
