2006 Nobel Prize for Literature

The Turkish novellist Orhan Pamuk has been announced as the winner of the 2006 Nobel prize for Literature. Some bookmakers had him as an early favourite but the feeling from some litbloggers was that he would be passed over due to this age - he was born in 1952. I doubt anyone will complain about this choice, especially given the problems Pamuk has had with the authorities in his own country.

Ah, yet another Nobel laureate I've never read. If that to-be-read pile falls over in the middle of the night I'm a dead man.
