Great points kline.

That generation of writers born after 1945 and before the '60s (which also includes Hanif Kureishi, Allan Holinghurst and Julian Barnes) is likely done for. I would have chosen Julian Barnes among them to win the Nobel.

This is what the official fish wrapper had to say when ranking the British writers after 1945:
