I predict Philip Roth as a winner, but as an Italian I go for Dacia Maraini (although I should be ashamed that I've never read her).

I think your prediction may be spot on. I'd put Rohinton Mistry as the dark horse candidate...

It's amazing that there are two Malouf (although spelled differently) in the list.

I haven't read Mistry. What a shame!

Ha! Somehow I skimmed over the Malouf/Maalouf bit.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
