That link seems broken, was it this one? Can't say I've ever heard of Bernard Dadiť, and Wikipedia lists his last published work as being from 1982. Doesn't discount that he may be a fine writer, of course, though I'm always wary of any nomination that's made publicly (remember that South American nobody from a few years ago?), and by the Ivorian government at that... Has anyone read him?

ETA: Plus, well, if they only nominated him a week ago, he's not really in the running, is he?

Maalouf is Lebanese, yeah, though a French citizen these days, writing in French.
