And only one Arabic writer has ever won the award is Naguib Mahfouz. The Nobel Prize is really a problematic pile of shit in many ways. Awarding one hit wonders of not-so impressive novels like Golding, while passing up titanic figures of great genius like Graham Greene, never giving the award to an American poet, an over-emphasis on political refugees and on Scandinavian literature, etc etc. Yet it till carries a certain media frenzy and prestige, though arguably I'd like to see another more prominent award created, one judged by a truly international panel of literary figures from around the world.
