Nobel Laureate Mo Yan

Mo YanToday the Nobel Prize for Literature was awarded to Mo Yan, a Chinese novelist, "who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary".  More information about his life and writing here

A note on the Laureate's name--it's a pseudonym.  His real name is Guan Moye. Mo Yan means (with nice irony) "don't speak."
