Nobel Prize Winners (Especially Literature)

Speaking of great literature, did you see that the Nobel Prizes winners were announced this week?

Oh, sure, you might be interested in the Chemistry winners, or maybe Physics, or possibly Medicine–they’re all great. The Peace prize (announced before this is published but after it is written) gets all the glory, and Economics gets more attention in Chicago, but it’s literature that sets my heart racing…and this year’s winner is an exciting pick: Mario Vargas Llosa.

If you’re wondering what you should read first by the man, you can check this list out or find out more about him and his writing here. Or you can just listen to the interview with him, given in the glow of the news.

h/t to Adriana Tapanes Inojosa for the heads up.
