The biggest bias with the Prize selection in my opinion is that towards fiction as against non-fiction. Would be great to see non-fiction get its fair share.

The last Nobel prize winner who was more renown for his non-fiction (in this case essays) was Jean-Paul Sartre. And that was exactly 50 years ago.

Hawking is low on the Physics long list surprise us and give the Literature prize to Hawking or some other non-fiction writer.
Maybe have a fiction and non-fiction writer share the prize.

(Edit I forgot that nnyhav already correctly raised the unlikely prospect within the context of Alexievich's nonfiction)
