Ivo Andric got the Nobel Prize for litterature 1961.
Have you read anything by him? I havenĀ“t.
After 50 years the Nobel Prize Commity tells who did not get it and why.
Tolkien was suggested, but did not get it because of his bad prosa. and not being a good story teller. Also he was too old.
Others who did not get it 1961
Graham Greene _ was number 2
Karen Blixen was number 3
, Robert Frost, Lawrence Durell og EM Forster (who also was too old).

@saab,
I always liked Graham Greene, so he'd be my pick.

@saab,
I've always had an affinity for Frost. My dad gave me a book of his work when I was 12.
