Discover the last fifteen years of the Nobel Prize in Literature

Today, the Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to French novelist Patrick Modiano. Very well known in France, few of his works have been translated in English, and only one title is, for the time being, available in ebook. We sincerely hope that this award will hopefully lead to the translation of all his books, and to the translation of important works from every continent.
In the present post, we look back on fifteen years of Nobel Prizes in Literature: do not hesitate to click on the author’s name to discover all of his or her works!
