Hi all,

With the recent discussion around Dylan, I thought these prior comments 
on Durrell and the Nobel might be of interest:

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2012/jan/05/jrr-tolkien-nobel-prize

James Clawson will present some detailed quantitative data on the Nobel 
committee in Louisville this Spring, but in the meantime it's helpful to 
see what kept the prize out of Old D's reach in 1961 & '62.

Cheers,
James
