I wrote about MO Yan last night. I anticipated him to win the Nobel Prize in Literature today.
At lunch time at work today, I rushed to the computer to check the news. I was “chuffed to bits” when I heard that he’s won.
It’s great news for the Chinese speaking world. It’s great news for the world literature, as the prize has opened up a window, for the world to amaze at the wonder of modern Chinese literature.
It may be just a start. It’s a great step forward.
Congratulations to 莫言 MO Yan!
