Given the Booker disappointment earlier this week, I was sure that the Nobel was going to go to some obscure feminist poet from Luxembourg. So it's a pleasant surprise to learn that the Prize is going to someone who I've not only heard of, but actually like.

Oh, and I can't wait to hear the acceptance speech.
