  1. I’m afraid that Marcus’s conviction, as expressed unambiguously to the BBC in a program aired on 2/4/17, that Trump is a Manchurian candidate, runs interference on that conclusion, or at least suggests that Marcus requires an extended stay of hospitalization before he can even be considered for a Nobel acceptance speech, let alone a prize. Unless there’s one specifically for science fiction.

  2. You don’t have to agree with Greil Marcus’ politics to believe that he’s a better prose stylist and writer than Dylan.Just read Chronicles by Dylan …I haven’t heard the BBC interview in question,but I suspect that Greil Marcus was being less than ham-fistedly literal,and may have been calling attention to Trump’s apparent soft spot for Putin…Thanks for calling attention to the interview…I hope it will aired on this site.
