A Pynchon Nobel would be lots of fun. If they're going to give it to an American, give it to one who's guaranteed not to show up to collect it. :P
do you think pynchon could clinch the award by secretly promising the academy to accept it in person?
I'm not sure they're even allowed to do that - supposedly, no one outside the actual Academy is supposed to know until the minute it's announced. I know they didn't do that with the media shy Jelinek, nor with Pinter or Lessing who were both at an age where travelling might pose a problem.
