Nobel Prize for literature
There was no prize awarded in 2018 because the Nobel people were embroiled in a sex scandal, so this year two prizes were awarded handed out:Stockholm — Polish novelist Olga Tokarczuk and Austrian writer Peter Handke won the 2018 and 2019 Nobel Prizes for literature on Thursday. The double prizes came after a year's hiatus due to sex abuse allegations that rocked the secretive Swedish Academy, which selects the laureates.
Tokarczuk won for works that explore the "crossing of boundaries as a form of life," the academy said Thursday.
Handke's work was described as exploring "the periphery and the specificity of human experience" with linguistic ingenuity.cbsnews.com/news/nobel-prize-literature ... x-scandal/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olga_Tokarczukhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Handke
I don't read many translations, but I did see a movie that Handke co-wrote. Wings of Desire.
