Kind of. This is what I predicted: two days ago.

FROM THE AP: STOCKHOLM, Sweden - French novelist Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio (right) won the 2008 Nobel Prize in literature on Thursday for his poetic adventure and "sensual ecstasy." The Swedish Academy called Le Clezio, 68, an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity." The Swedish Academy said Le Clezio from early on "stood out as an ecologically engaged author, an orientation that is accentuated with the novels 'Terra Amata,' 'The Book of Flights,' 'War' and 'The Giants.'"

The italics are mine. Ha, ha, ha. . .

Next year Karl Lungvist Hammerskjold whose 10 000 verse Faroese epic on over fishing of herring stocks "shines a penetrating sensual light on the strange, unknown erotic world of a Rigsfællesskab fisherman."
