Reflections on literature, writing, and the writing life
But he is among the greatest and most original novelists alive. Why he has not been given the Nobel is a mystery.
Dear Mr. Wilson,How wonderful to find another who is even aware of him. The internet truly makes available the wide world of readers. I couldn't agree more with your evaluation. The only thing I can figure is that they stand for too traditional a moral view of the universe. Once upon a time Francois Mauriac could win a Nobel Prize--but now that view is no longer respectable--hence Mr. Lindgren languishes without a prize. It doesn't matter, so long as he keeps writing.Thank you for commenting.shalom,Steven
Could you tell us a bit more about Torgny Lindgren? I checked the local library, and all it has is an international short story anthology with one of his stories.
Dear Fred,This will require more than a simple response. I hope to compose something this evening to meet the need.Thank you for asking.shalom,Steven
