On a novel by this year’s winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature:

“In Snow, translated by Maureen Freely, the line between playful farce and gruesome tragedy is very fine.

There are those who despise us for writing the news before it happens…. Quite a few things do happen only because we’ve written them up first. This is what modern journalism is all about.’ And sure enough….”
