Points for Effort

Tags: | |

Obama has won this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. The head of the Nobel committee, Thorbjørn Jagland, explained why: ‘It was because we would like to support what he is trying to achieve.’

Were to someone to declare, very publicly, that they had embarked on writing the best novel of all time, what should their Nobel ambitions be? Can I have it now, please?
