Mo Yan: winner of 2012's Nobel Prize for literature.
« on: October 11, 2012, 09:42:20 AM »
Until Mo Yan, Chinese writer, won this years Nobel Prize for literature I'd never heard of him nor what he has written. Figured it would be worth checking out an author "who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary."

His notable novels are:

Red Sorghum
Life and Death are Wearing Me Out
Big Breasts, Wide Hips,
The Republic of Wine.

Amazon, here I come!
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Ah-ha! Keep me posted as you tackle these... I'm always a bit wary of these top-level writing awards.
