Nobel Laureates

nobel

I have enjoyed a few books by writers who have won the Nobel Prize for Literature which got me thinking I wonder if any others are just as good imo. So my plan is to read at least 1 book by every person who has won the prize since the beginning of the Prize which was 1901. 1901 - 2012, it has apparently been awarded (so far) 105 times to 109 Laureates (a few years have joint winners)

 

This will be a long term goal!

 

Looking through the list of writers, many are unfamilar but good old tinternet helped me research their most interesting work for me to select. At least a handful of the writers have multiple works I would be interested in reading, Doris Lessing in particular (She was the oldest Laureate so far, 88 when awarded in 2007!

 

Doris Lessing

 

So far my list is as follows, starting from the most recent winner 2012
