Vijaydan Detha and Eduardo Mendoza Garriga, huh? Anyone familiar with them? Hanan Al-Shaykh is a new name for me too, I think...

Vijaydan Detha ( 87yrs) is from India, prominent short story writer in Hindi and Rajasthani. I haven't read any of his books to comment, but he seems to be pretty well known in the Hindi Literature belt.

Apparently, his name was figuring in the 2011 contenders list ( I don't remember, but according to this press report) : http://www.dnaindia.com/lifestyle/1596594/report-vijaydan-detha-the-nobel-contender-from-rajasthan
