  Olga Tokarczuk ?  The New Yorker published an article featuring this novelist months ago. Peter Handke?  Margaret Atwood  should have been the winner, not Peter Handke.

I'd argue that it would be invidious for the judges of Nobel Prize in Literature to elide Margaret Atwood's remarkable achievements in her quest to defend women's rights and freedoms. She should be held up as a role model for female novelists. The view that  only European writers care about humanity is parti pris.

re: ' The view that  only European writers care about humanity is parti pris."

Indeed, but the world outside of the 9 eyes are fully aware of their preconceived view...

  By age 17, she played a key role in commanding France's army, and her forte in the military seemed to be for strategy over slaying. The French owed much to Joan, and yet it was the Burgundians, Frenchmen loyal to England, that led to her demise. She was captured in 1430 and, despite several escape attempts and rescue efforts, Joan was put on trial by the English for heresy and cross-dressing. Her visions were now derided, and her armor called an atrocity. She was convicted, sentenced to death, and burned alive at the stake

Those Chinese writers who have won the prize were not Europeans.
