IEGS Blog | 7 October 2021

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2021 was awarded to Abdulrazak Gurnah.

The motivation from the Swedish Academy reads:  "for his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents."

The library has ordered books by Gurnah, both in Swedish and English. If you want to reserve a book, just let the librarian know.
