Who should win the Nobel prize in literature?

Philip Roth by Andrea Ventura

Who should win the Nobel prize in literature?

As the countdown begins to this year’s prize, we take a look at the most tipped authors. Are you rooting for old favourites Philip Roth or Haruki Murakami, or someone else entirely?

It’s that time of year again. With the Nobel prizes for medicinechemistry and physics already announced, tomorrow is literature’s turn. We know the game: names such as Philip Roth, Haruki Murakami are perennials on the list – but we also know how famously difficult it is to predict, and how much the Swedish Academy loves to surprise and confound. Here are this year’s top ten tipped authors according to bookies Ladbrokes on Wednesday, with Belarusian journalist Svetlana Aleksijevitj leading the pack.
