    A professor of English --no less-- is a fan of Philip Roth. Fine. He wants to write about his admiration, yes love for Philip Roth. Fine. But it seems no one is really interested, so he has to find an angle that is newsworthy.Ohh, the Nobel prize "No offense Alice Munro – confession, I have not read her – but giving the award to Munro, is like giving an award for best smartphone to a Blackberry (sorry Canadians) when there is an iPhone around. Well, at this point to good editor of Haaretz should have asked the professor -- of English!-- to go home and read Mrs Munro and come back with an estimation. Swedish literary culture is right now flooding with extremely Jewish literature -- written by swedish Jews. I am often amazed by the intense interest this small country has for things Jewish... Crying antisemitism at this point is really below any literary persons level I am a Swedish writer and journalist living in Tel Aviv...Presonally I had hoped that Assi Djebar would get the prize this year... she is an Arab, so that must make me a Swedish antisemite too even thiugh my name is Goldman
