And what this great lady said when she heard the news?
"They can’t give a Nobel to someone who’s dead so I think they were probably thinking they had better give it to me now before I popped off."
And what she said when she heard the praises of the Swedish Academy–""that epicist of the female experience, who with scepticism, fire and visionary power has subjected a divided civilisation to scrutiny"?
"Oh goodness, well obviously they like me better now than they used to."
Let’s give this great lady a round applause, shall we?  She is the best!
