Nobel Lit Prize

Just read that this year's recipient is Harold Pinter.,11711,1592129,00.html

An interesting choice. I've always liked his work, and his stature certainly warrants it... his support of Amnesty International and outspoken criticism of Bush and Blair may well suggest it to be another "one in the eye for Bush" like last year's (? or was it the year before's, I can't remember) peace prize to Jimmy Carter. Heh. If so, more power to them, I say! As long as he doesn't do something grumpy like turn it down.

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
