STOCKHOLM (dpa) – This year’s Nobel Prize in Literature goes to the French author Annie Ernaux.
Ernaux, 82, was cited for “the courage and clinical acuity with which she exposes the roots, alienations and collective limitations of personal memory,” the Nobel committee said.
Mats Malm, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, announced the winner on Thursday in Stockholm, Sweden.
A week of Nobel Prize announcements began Monday with the award in Medicine honoring a scientist who unlocked the mysteries of Neanderthal DNA.
Three scientists jointly won the physics prize on Tuesday for showing that tiny particles can remain connected to each other even when separated.
The chemistry prize was presented on Wednesday to three scientists who have developed ways to connect molecules that can be used to create more targeted drugs.
It continues with chemistry on Wednesday and literature on Thursday. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the economics prize on October 10.
