Poll: Who Should Have Won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature?

Congrats, Ishiguro...but who should have won?

Warmest congratulations to Kazuo Ishiguro, who won this year's Nobel Prize in Literature. Sincerely, he has earned the prestigious award. But, also, there are a bunch of writers who also deserve it. We won't know for another fifty years who the committee was deciding between, so we've gathered a list of nine potential writers we think might've been in the gauntlet.
