Paysages forecast for Nobel Prize in Literature 2020

Tomorrow Thursday, 07 October, at 13:00 CET the Swedish Academy will announce the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature 2020. As every year since 2009[1]Paysages” tries to forecast the winner of the Nobel Price in Literature.  Alex Shepard published an article called “Who Will Win the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature? – Not Haruki Murakami, that’s for sure   “ where we can discover a long list of writers who will not be awarded following Shepard ‘s argumentation. As M.A.Orthofer wrote it in the Literary Saloon, Shepard presents “some entertaining speculation and a bucketful of name”. Orthofer’s thoughts concerning Nobel Prize in Literature 2020 can be fond in the Literary Saloon under the heading “6 October 2020 – Tuesday/Nobel Prize countdown” .

So my list of 2020 favorites begins with António Lobo Antunes, even if he does not appear on any odd list. Antunes could be followed by Maryse Condé, Claudio Magris, and Adonis, Ismail Kadare, Milan Kundera, Margaret Atwood, Jamaica Kincaid, Anne Carson, Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi,  Don DeLillo or  Cormac McCarthy.  More or less the same names I had on my list last year. Tomorrow Thursday 07.10.2020 at 13.00 we will know more!
