    You don't have to be a jerk to be a Nobel prize

    But it helps:

    ...We were to talk only of literature, but my opening question was greeted by dead silence. Coetzee was writing the question on his notepad. He pondered it for several seconds, then proceeded to analyze the assumptions on which it was based, a process that offered some sharp insights into my intellectual shortcomings but revealed absolutely nothing about Coetzee himself. All my questions were similarly treated, and I wound up sounding like a reporter for a fanzine.

    Meanwhile, his meme is deflating pretty quickly. Disgrace has fallen in itself, and is now #47 in the Amazon sales rank. Still some way to go until it goes past Fateless, Imre Kertesz most popular novel. You don't remember who's Imre Kertesz? Still some way to go to reach that, too...
