The Academy have all but said that Oates won't get it
What did they say?



can I please add here that I am severely puzzled that McCarthy is regarded as part of a big 3 these days but neither Barth nor Coover are? With Sot-Weed, Giles Goatboy and Lost in the funhouse Barth has written 3 of the most important, best and most influential American works of prose in the last century, and Coover isn't far behind and still going strong. I started reading Noir recently and damn that is a good book.
