extract of a 2012 interview by Englund with Englund:

"I can not resist myself: do you and the other ones in the Swedish Academy have some kind of bias against authors from the USA, Canada or Australia?

No, of course not!

So there are authors from these countries that could actually win the Nobel Prize for Literature?

Yes, certainly! But do not ask about names……"



Ok Canada now understood and not unusual to mention US in this context - but why mention Australia ?
