Orhan Pamuk Wins The Nobel Prize For Literature

It was announced on Thursday morning that Orhan Pamuk has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. You can find plenty of news stories on the Web (1)(2)(3). Wikipedia has an extensive profile, with links to further resourses, including a good number of links to news stories ar about his trial last year in Istanbul for "denigrating Turkishness." Pamuk has been very popular locally since the publication of his novel My Name Is Red in English in 2001.
