The 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature: It’s Mo Yan

By Susan Harris

The Nobel Prize in literature goes to Chinese writer Mo Yan. From the citation: “Through a mixture of fantasy and reality, historical and social perspectives, Mo Yan has created a world reminiscent in its complexity of those in the writings of William Faulkner and Gabriel García Márquez, at the same time finding a departure point in old Chinese literature and in oral tradition.” You can read what we thought of his Big Breasts and Wide Hips here.
