      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.
