This year’s Nobel Prizewinner for Literature is French author Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio, the author of novels like Le procès-verbal and Désert. They declared him “author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization.” I know nothing about Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio. I have never actually even heard that name before in my life. I guess the Nobel official who declared American culture was too insular was right. Here is the Wikipedia page for Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio. Enjoy.
