Bob Dylan’s Nobel Controversy

“I’m very divided. I love that the novel committee opens up for other kinds of literature – lyrics and so on. I think that’s brilliant. But knowing that Dylan is the same generation as Pynchon, Philip Roth, Cormac McCarthy, makes it very difficult for me to accept it. I think one of those three should have had it, really. But if they get it next year, it will be fine.” —Karl Ove Knausgaard

“To me [the Nobel] is like pinning a medal on Mount Everest for being the highest mountain.”Leonard Cohen
