Nobel Prize

Belarusian writer Svetlana Alexievich has won the 2015 Nobel Literature Prize, honoured for her work chronicling the horrors of war and life under the repressive Soviet regime. The Swedish Academy hailed the 67-year-old for writings that were “a monument to suffering and courage in our time” – tableaux of World War II, Chernobyl and the war in Afghanistan, crafted through thousands of interviews. Her books have been published in 19 countries. She also has written three plays and the screenplays for 21 documentary films. Congratulations Svetlana.
