Bad News, Bookies: UPDATED

Nobel Prize for Literature goes to Mario Vargas Llosa.

You'll recall that this time last week, Tomas Transtromer was favored to win, with Vargas Llosa  showing odds of 45/1.

So, there you go.

UPDATE:   More on the Vargas Llosa win here.  My favorite reader comment so far:  "You win a few, you Llosa few."

Another overview of Vargas Llosa's body of work from novelist William Boyd.

Also:   The inevitable conversation about who should have won instead.
