Bob Dylan belatedly responds to Nobel Prize

The Nobel Committee has finally succeeded in contacting the elusive singer, it announced.

‘The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless,’ Dylan told Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy. ‘I appreciate the honor so much.’

It is not clear if he will bother to attend the ceremony.

    It leaves many other people speechless too, and probably for different reasons.

    >>In an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph posted Friday, Dylan was quoted as saying he “absolutely” wants to attend the Dec. 10 prize ceremony, “if it’s at all possible.”<<

      Yes: slight difference from “not clear if he will bother.” But after all this time, he ought to have known whether his touring dates conflicted, so one wonders what the problem might be. Maybe whether he is still “speechless,” which I am inclined to believe he might have been (he was hardly alone there!).

      Dylan being Dylan, it sounds like.
