I'm with Sharon as I don't really care who wins awards, and I'm not nearly well-read enough in contemporary literature to have an opinion. I would like to see Pynchon win, though, as he has given me the most pleasure of those I've read. I had hoped he would win before Professor Irwin Corey passed away, he had picked up Pynchon's NBA award with double-talking mania. Pynchon's humor can be seen as subversive but also silly and I expect the serious minded judges look askance at such low comedy.
