2006 Nobel Prize in Literature

As somewhat expected, Orhan Pamuk has won the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature.  I’ve only read one of his books, Snow, but I did like it quite a bit.  (My Review)  I’m curious to read more of his works and will probably be picking more up soon at Powell’s.

In other literature prize news, Kiran Desai won the 2006 Man Booker Prize for her second novel The Inheritance of Loss, winning a prize her mother has been shortlisted for 3 times.
