If there’s anything more exciting than speculating on who will win a Nobel Prize in literature, it’s placing actual bets on it. Your odds-on favorite for this year’s honors, according to British gambling site Ladbrokes: Haruki Murakami, with ten-to-one odds! (According to the Times, Ladbrokes is pretty reliable for these sorts of things.) Murakami’s followed by Chinese author Mo Yan (twelve-to-one), Dutch author Cees Nooteboom (twelve-to-one), and Albanian author Ismail Kadare (fourteen-to-one). Cormac McCarthy comes in with 16-to-1, Alice Munro with 20-to-1, Bob Dylan with 33-to-1, Margaret Atwood with 50-to-1, and Jonathan Franzen’s alllll the way at the bottom with 100-to-1 odds. Place your bets, cats and kittens.
