Jesper Svenbro

is the newest member of the Swedish Academy (the people who pick the Nobel Prize winners).

Seems like a reasonable choice.

I was actually reading one of his books last night when I got an e-mail from my neighbor, John Matthias (Svenbro's American translator). So I think I may have had something to do with it. Plus we're both from Skåne, the southern, not-quite-Swedish part of Sweden.
