^^ What Birne said. Of course, now they're stuck in the situation where any prize not given to Philip Roth will prove that they still hate America, and any prize that is given to Philip Roth will be seen as backing down from a policy they never had in the first place. So, the debate will continue.

Just a thought: Ngugi will probably be getting a lot of press this autumn over here, with two of his books coming out in (new) translation. That shouldn't mean anything, but...
