Speculation / Nobel Prize in Literature

The announcement of the winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature is to be made shortly - the direct quote from the official website is: "The 2014 Nobel Prize in Literature has not been awarded yet. According to tradition, the Swedish Academy will set the date for its announcement later." Here, "later" probably means early to mid October, and interest appears to be hotting up in who might nab it. 

UK betting organisation Ladbrokes gives the odds here. At the time of posting Ladbrokes has Haruki Murakami as the favourite, as does another on-line betting shop, Paddy Power - see here

Meanwhile, the UK Guardian newspaper tips Kenyan Ngugi wa Thiong'o as the winner, see here

Two on-line literature communities are also currently discussing the odds, World Literature Forum and The Fictional Woods.

Happy speculation!
