So, I guess the Nobel Committee aren't totally out-to-lunch.

Funny thing is that she didn't care she won.

She was like "Hmm ok" :lol:

I read an account a little more negative. She said ''I couldn't care less.'' So it seems she knows how much the Nobel Committee have lost their way.
However when a reporter pointed out that she would have a surge in sales of her books, she brightened up and said, ''OK, I guess that's good then.''

:lol:

Lessing is a pretty good choice. :) I think she said smth like 'I've been nominated for so many years that I can't get too excited about it any more'.

I had to laugh at her reaction :lol: They showed it on tv the other day, and when the reporter told her she had won the Nobel prize, she went all, "oh Christ :rolleyes:" :rolls:

From what I remember, she was very critical about the whole thing though, because apparently the committee had told her years ago she would never win it :o
