This Week in Books
9 October, 2009
there were two major awards.
And the biggie, the Nobel Prize in Literature went to Herta Müller, a Romanian born German writer who chronicled life under Nicolae Ceaucescu’s brutal regime. The reactions to her award can be found here at the Literary Saloon and here.
So I thought Sarah Waters might win the Booker for The Little Stranger and Haruki Murakami the Nobel, but hey, what do I know? Good thing I didn’t place a bet at the bookies.
