Jon Fosse wins Nobel Prize in Literature
Norwegian writer Jon Fosse has won the Nobel Prize in Literature. His dramatic works are so acclaimed in Norway that the government gave him a lifetime stipend and a residence near the Royal Palace in Oslo. The committee said that Fosse received the prize “for his innovative plays and prose which give voice to the unsayable.”
