“The Nobel Prize in Literature 2015 was awarded to Svetlana Alexievich “for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time“.
The Wall Street Journal wrote about her award, and wrote some less-known and compelling facts about Svetlana Alexievich.
I, personally, can’t wait to get my hands on her book, “War’s Unwomanly Face”, although from what I gather through many sources, it is out of print.
Brava to her!
