Swedish Academy once again makes me feel unread/uneducated


Congratualations to Tomas Tranströmer, winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize for Literature!

Just kidding.  Though he is Swedish, he seems a bit less, um, creative in the kitchen.

Praised by the judges for “his condensed translucent images” which give us “fresh access to reality”, Tranströmer’s surreal explorations of the inner world and its relation to the jagged landscape of his native country have been translated into over 50 languages.

Sounds like my reading list just got a little longer.
