This is why the Munich Literature Festival shows more courage than the senile and fearful beaurocrats at the Stockholm Nobel committee when it comes to honour important autors .

In Munich you can meet during one week

Salman Rushdie  (India / UK)
Amir Hassan Cheheltan (Iran)
Zeruya Shalev (Israel)

The Stockholm beaurocrats are the greatest cowards. They are afraid to honour those writers who are brave enough not to hide a clear message, but instead award authors of questionable literature quality and of political mediocracy.

Who ever likes Rushdie, Zeruya Shalev, Joseph Roth, Amoz Oz or Lars Gustafsson:  Don’t expect the Stockholm Nobel Committee beaurocrats to have the balls to award them the prize that they deserve.
