i agree with nnyhav pretty much. Ishiguro's writing has mastery to it that can't be reduced to some formula.

Although, picking him says more about the new handlers of the Nobel Committee than about Ishiguro.

Also, does anyone think that by giving Ishiguro, Nobel Committee have effectively picked the "winner" among his peers, the cohort of such London writers like McEwan, Rushdie and Amis? and so these guys have been effectively passed over? (not that they would be considered Nobel worthy types in this thread anyway :P )
