me too, boredom with/at passes for the good stuff, never mind greatness in literary fiction is what led to my reading so much speculative etc etc.

It's too soon for Laszlo, Goytisolo i'd be very surprised, but happy, likewise Ashbery. But as a list it's looking more than a little shop worn if not downright impoverished and escalated(Oates again, fer crying out loud)
Yes to all of the above. I'm waiting for Krasznahorkai's prize, but I know it will be years yet. (And I've given up hope on Goytisolo winning it, although maybe I'm being pessimistic).

ETA: Of course I'd be so happy if Murnane won, but that will never happen. (And it's probably for the best for his reputation's long-term longevity when seen in light of White's post-Prize disgraceful fall into obscurity).
