We have to talk about this, no? I guess I'll start.
Surely nobody has much of a problem with the selection of Ishiguro. He may not be the best of the candidates (he may be; I'm sure) but at least we've all heard of him and thought of him as a writer of literature.
I had not read Ishiguro until this year. When we chose The Buried Giant, I decided to read The Remains of the Day, which Guillermo had so enthusiastically reviewed. I enjoyed TRotD more than TBG, but TBG was ok. Had we not chosen that, I probably would have read Never Let Me Go as part of my project of reading 21st century novels. I may well still read it sometime soon.
I found this article: https://newrepublic.com/article/145139/will-win-2017-nobel-prize-literature
Didn't read the whole thing, but skimmed the names. Didn't see Ishiguro's anywhere. I think the Nobel likes to surprise. Of the supposed favorites, the only ones I've read are Atwood and Krasznahorkai. I probably think Atwood is a better writer than Ishiguro; I've enjoyed her books more at any rate. Krasznahorkai is fun to say.
Always fun to see who wins the Nobel and to complain or approve.
Anybody you hope to see win sometime?
