May as well give it to Philip Roth

The contenders for the 2007 Man Booker International Prize have been announced:

Chinua Achebe
Margaret Atwood
John Banville
Peter Carey
Don DeLillo
Carlos Fuentes
Doris Lessing
Ian McEwan
Harry Mulisch
Alice Munro
Michael Ondaatje
Amos Oz
Philip Roth
Salman Rushdie
Michel Tournier   

I love the criteria for this one: “The Man Booker International Prize recognises one writer for their achievement in fiction.” Couldn’t they narrow it down just a tiny bit? 

The winner will be announced in early June.
