Read the Prize


When in need of inspiration for good lit, the Nobel list always seems like a good place to look up. And so do other prizes. There is just so much to read and so little time! Here following is the list of some of the N prize winners I have read. This also reflects that some of these are more accessible than others...for some I have read most of the works because they hooked me completely (the stars below). And then there are others which I wish I can read more of. It's about time, mood and balancing it with the other good things in life.
  1. Kazuo Ishiguro (2017)
  2. Patrick Modiano (2014)
  3. Alice Munro (2013)
  4. Mario Vargas Llosa (2010)
