Just found out that now that the Nobel Prize for Literature Committee has dissolved due to misconduct, Swedish Librarians have created the New Academy Prize for Literature to recognize the best in international literature. Lovers of great writing can help vote based on a very fair and nice mix of authors from India, Nigeria, US, UK, Canada, France, Israel et al. Visit https://www.dennyaakademien.com/ for the shortlist and vote. I personally went with Margaret Atwood who is long overdue for recognition.
