Ngugi wa Thiong'o - to Win Pulitzer Prize for Literature?

I've got Ngugi wa Thong'o's Decolonising the Mind: The Politics of Language in African Literature
to read on my flight to Nairobi. I thought of getting his massive, almost-800-page Wizard of the Crow but thought it too long, even for 17 hours in the air.Today's Daily Nation speculates that Ngugi will win this year's Pulitzer Prize for Literature. It will be awarded on Thursday.
