Mo Yan is the 2012 Nobel Literature Laureate

October 11, 2012 § 1 Comment

I have heard Chinese writer Mo Yan’s name being bandied about for months in some quarters as being a favorite for the Nobel, so it was little surprise that he won.  A quick check of the iBookstore shows that he has already had some books translated into English (and I presume in several other European languages), so I went ahead and bought the e-book edition of The Republic of Wine, which I will read and possibly review late this month/November after I finish writing the Booker Prize reviews and maybe after the National Book Award fiction finalists as well.

Anyone familiar with his writings want to weigh in?
