Ian McEwan won the Jerusalem Prize! http://bit.ly/enpfMR. For 2009 the winner was Haruki Murakami. The prize is awarded for the novelist who best expresses “freedom of the individual in society.”

  1. I’ve never read McEwan, so I have ordered one of his books from the library to rectify matters.

  2. I want to read something by Haruki Murakami.

  3. So many books worthy of reading and despite my speed, and despite the hours I gladly give to books, I will never be able to make any kind of decent in-road into the pile of “I wish…”

    Gads.

    1. Me too, Mary, and it wouldn’t matter how fast I read, though I don’t think I’m noted for speed.
