He was not a nominee, but he should have been---my mistake. M, I'm a little confused by your response---are you happy that he's dead?

Try his "Heban"/The shadow of the sun. Great book.

I remember we were reading his book at school- The last Emperor , I think.

no I am not - sorry, I though he was nominated for a Noble Prize.
I am a big fan of his work. I am really sorry.

That's what I thought----it didn't sound like you to be thrilled about anyones death, that's why I was shocked. Then I realized what I had originally wrote and understood what you meant. So....my apologies.:)
