Unsurprised

Doris Lessing was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature.

Here’s what she said about it:

“I can’t say I’m overwhelmed with surprise,” Lessing said. “I’m 88 years old and they can’t give the Nobel to someone who’s dead, so I think they were probably thinking they’d probably better give it to me now before I’ve popped off.”

I’d invite anyone who is conversant in her works to comment, as I think the only one I’ve read is The Golden Notebook.
