Orhan Pamuk, the Turkish Novelist, won The Nobel Prize for Literature this past Thursday. Last night I went with my wife to Borders and bought one of his books. It was called 'Snow' and is about an exiled poet return to his native Turkey. I can see why he won the Nobel Prize for Literature...that book is truly a masterpiece!
When J.M. Coetzee won the Nobel Prize for Literature back about four years ago, I had never heard of him and decided I would read every book written by the author. The next year the Austrian novelist Elfriede Jelinek won the prize and I never heard of her either, so during that year I read all her books too. So that is what I do, I read all the books written by the Nobel Prize winner for Literature during the course of the year.
