Mario Vargas Llosa has won the Nobel. I never thought he'd win because of his politics, but maybe leaning right doesn't mean as much in the post-Bush area. Whatever your opinion about said politics, the guy knows how to string together a story. One thing I think he gets that many other highly respected novelists forget from time to time is that first and foremost, a novel is supposed to be enjoyable for the reader.
