Subject: Tookie and The Nobel


A question via e-mail:

Mr. Lowry,

I was wondering if you or another Corner writer could answer this: What does it take to be nominated for a Nobel prize? Can anyone do it? The fact that he has been nominated has been mentioned in every “Tookie” Williams story I’ve read.

Can I just nominate, say, my dog and then say “Hey, my dog was nominated for a Nobel prize, this make him better than your dog!?”

Just curious….
