However, eligibility for this list is rather odd: novelists
and poets (apples and oranges), but not playwrights; and a
definition of "British" which includes those foreign-born
naturalized long after their best work (e.g. Rushdie)- but
no Irish need apply.
Rushdie wrote all of his novels after coming to the U.K. (although who knows
where he is at any particular moment these days). The list includes Isaiah
Berlin, I notice, who never wrote any fiction.
