Yes, fascinating history! Good one.

Ok - my question:

Who did 1957 Nobel Literature Prize Laureate Albert Camus believe was more worthy of the honour in that year?

[Hint: answer is on my website...but maybe it's so easy you don't need help?]

Just because I vaguely remember rick green having done a review of Witold Gombrowicz, I'm going to say him. I have no idea if he was even alive then.

OK - person we want was born in a country (see my location) that won the European Soccer Championship in 2004 though has little hope of getting anywhere in the World Cup. The Church in this little country once excommunicated him for writing a charming story about some very famous historical figures who have also appeared, just as controversially, in a Dan Brown novel. He was most proud of his Odyssey a poem made up of 33,333 17-syllable verses, but is most famous for his story about a man, a bookworm, a mine, and a catastrophe!

I knew the answer but am not going to say it - as I have no 'next question' (and the last failed )
