The Nobel Prize in Literature 2005

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2005 is awarded to the English writer Harold Pinter "who in his plays uncovers the precipice under everyday prattle and forces entry into oppression's closed rooms".

You can listen to the first brief interview with Pinter on the Nobel Prize website. He actually doesn't say much in the minute and 20 second interview. The prize was as much as a surprise to him as anybody. He is "deeply moved and no words at the moment". More to come from Stockholm certainly.

Speaking of Nobel Prize winners... Okay, not really, but be sure to check out the Ottawa Small Press Book Fair at the Jack Purcell Community Centre on Elgin Street, right beside the Gilmour Public School (on Jack Purcell Lane). Free to the public, the fair will be happening Saturday, October 15th from noon to 5pm. We all have to start somewhere, eh?
