2006 Nobel Prize for Literature
BRITISH PLAYWRIGHT Harold Pinter won the 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature, the first Briton to win the literature award since V.S. Naipaul won it in 2001. So who will it be for 2006? A couple of candidates come to mind.
Orhan Pamuk is a perfect candidate for the 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature for his contribution to World Literature with a consistent body of work, both fiction and nonfiction. Other excellent choices for this prize would be Adonis (Ali Ahmad Said), Margaret Atwood, Don DeLillo, E.L. Doctorow, Ryszard Kapuscinski, Milan Kundera, Alice Munro, Joyce Carol Oates, Amos Oz, Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie and John Updike.
The 2006 Nobel Prize for Literature will be announced on Thursday, October 12, 2006
