Yeah, I like this choice. I thought they would go with someone more obvious (Antunes, Atwood, Cartarescu, Marias, Krasznahorkai, Thiong'o). I'm glad to be blindsided and that the Academy supports the idea of a Nobel-worthy author as someone who doesn't have to appeal only to the literati. There are great and deserving popular and mainstream authors as well and not every winner has to be challenging, little-known, or unorthodox.

An Artist of the Floating World is my favorite.

I did quite poorly with my predictions this year and only guessed the most obvious prize (Physics).
