Oops I Did It Again!

I really am the kiss of death.

Lydia Davis has just been named the winner of The Man Booker International Prize for 2013. Now, she is certainly a fine writer and I suspect Team Booker are trying to correct the anti-American Nobel bias in major literary award world (last time it was Philip Roth), but let's face it, she ain't no Aharon Appelfeld.

Perhaps I should have done my cheer routine for Yan Lianke. That would have bolstered the old Israeli's chances!
