Thanks for the names. Guess we can cross Shirley Hazzard off that...

And Winton is good, I really enjoyed Cloud Street and Breath, but I don't know if he's Nobel material. Might be too poppy, a la Murakami. But what do you think of Flanagan?

And out of the four Australians that usually come up, I'd say Murnane has the best chance now. Carey's recent books haven been awful. Malouf hasn't published much of note lately. And the only time I hear Murray's name is when looking at Nobel odds. He hasn't stopped publishing, but he hasn't increased his profile.
