This year's will be much shorter.
FUCK YEAH MY BOY ISHIGURO DID IT YESSSSS
Frankly, I always thought he had a good shot of winning it eventually but I figured he was too young and needed another 5 - 10 years and another 1 - 2 major works under his belt. However, it turns out Ishiguro is actualy already 62 and not the early- to mid-50s I thought he was (where did the time go?), so perhaps it's not so surprising. Brilliant author and a brilliant choice. Definitely helps with erasing the bad taste of last year's fiasco.
Maybe I should make a series out of this.
