Let me take that off your hands

Looks like I’ll be getting a nomination for the Man Booker International Prize. John le Carré was just nominated for the prize and said while he was enormously flattered, “I do not compete for literary prizes and have therefore asked for my name to be withdrawn.”

Ergo, there’s an opening, and I think it will be easy enough to submit my name in his stead. A substitute, if you will. No need for the prize to go to waste.

Of course, this is just the nomination phase, so I could still lose out to the other 12 nominees. But unlike le Carré, I’m not one to decline £60,000.
