  •  Too many brilliant (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Laurence Lewis

    non-American writers out there -- especially Arab authors.  (or is it Arabic????)  I'd love to see Simin Behbahani win.  She's around 85, is a brilliant Persian poet and an outstanding voice against the regime.

    That being said -- Edward Albee is still alive -- and hopefully remains so for another several months since I will see him at a literary conference in April.  

    I do still think Roth has written some utterly stunning passages -- rivaled by none.
