No Such Thing as Opting Out?

Today’s January Magazine post about the nominees for the 2011 Man Booker International award contains the following information:
Notably, the Man Booker organization announced that novelist “John le Carré asked that his books should not be submitted for the annual prize to give less established authors the opportunity to win.” He is on the list anyway, along with David Maalouf, Philip Roth, Anne Tyler, Rohinton Mistry and Philip Pullman.
You’ll find that full post here.
