On Romanians (where my focus lies), I note that the Writers’ Union in Romania proposed/submitted to the academy Nicolae Breban, Mircea Cartarescu, Norman Manea and Varujan Vosganian - the last (former Economy minister) was not expected at all.

Cartarescu is clearly one of the favourites - but I relatively recently read his poetry and was not overtly impressed - I think he needs to bring out another great novel to win this. Manea should not be completely discounted and Breban is little known.

So not Romania's year this year I think (if Nina Cassian did not pass away this year I would have placed her ahead of the above - just a personal preference).
