Welcome to the subreddit of the poet laureate of rock 'n' roll. The voice of the promise of the '60s counter-culture. The guy who forced folk into bed with rock. Who donned make-up in the '70s and disappeared into a haze of substance abuse. Who emerged to find Jesus. Who was written off as a has-been by the end of the '80s and who suddenly shifted gears, releasing some of the strongest music of his career beginning in the late '90s. Ladies and gentlemen — Columbia recording artist Bob Dylan!

It’s less than 2 months now until the Nobel Prize in Literature 2022 is announced. As usual, lots of speculation is abound and bets are even starting to arise. According to the Wikipedia page for 2022 these are the favourites:

• Romania: Mircea Cărtărescu (novelist)

• Japan: Haruki Murakami (novelist), Yoko Tawada (novelist)

• Russia: Lyudmila Ulitskaya (novelist)

• France: Anne Ernaux (memoirist), Hélène Cixous (writer), Michel Houellebecq (writer)

• Canada: Margaret Atwood (novelist), Anne Carson (poet)

• Norway: Jon Fosse (playwright)

• Guadeloupe-France: Maryse Condé (writer)

• China: Can Xue (writer), Yan Lianke (writer)

• Nigeria: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (novelist)

• Britain: Hilary Mantel (author), Martin Amis (author)

• Ireland: Edna O’Brien (novelist)

• Germany: Botho Strauss (playwright), Jürgen Habermas (philosopher)

• America: Colson Whitehead, Edmund White, Joyce Carol Oates, Cormac McCarthy, Stephen King, and Thomas Pynchon (all novelists), Martha Nussbaum (philosopher)

• Mozambique: Mia Couto (novelist)

• Rwanda: Scholastique Mukasonga (writer)

• Jamaica-born British: Linton Kwesi Johnson (poet)

Note: I’m not entirely sure for some on the distinction between “writer”, “novelist”, and “author” that the Wikipedia makes. I just copied the descriptors provided.

What do we think of this list? There are some common names on there for “popular choices” each year like Pynchon and Murakami. Some controversial figures like Michel Houellebecq which would lead to some interesting reactions I’m sure. Are there any notable omissions from here? One name I’m used to seeing is Don Delillo but he’s not included in that list this year, perhaps his recent quality doesn’t live up to White Noise or Mao II. What about you? Who’s your bet? What’s your wildcard?
