There are many names of authors in discussions about who will win the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature. Names that get thrown around include Peter Handke, Svetlana Alexievich, Joyce Carol Oates, Haruki Murakami, Philip Roth and Salman Rushdie. 

American authors did not get an Nobel Prize in Literature since 1993, when Toni Morrison got the highest honor in Literature.

In 2014 the Nobel Prize in Literature went to Patrick Modiano for the art of memory with which he has evoked the most ungraspable human destinies and uncovered the life-world of the occupation.
