Congratulations, Turkey! ...you got yourself a nobel prize winner in literature this year! Orhan Pamuk "who in the quest for the melancholic soul of his native city has discovered new symbols for the clash and interlacing of cultures" was part of the motivation.

...this was the first time ever I had read anything by the nobel prize winner before winning the prize! ...I don´t know whether that says more about me...or more about the nobel prize winners...

From the official website of the Nobel Prize in literature:

Basın bildirisi
12 Ekim 2006

2006 Nobel Yazın Ödülü
Orhan Pamuk

2006 Nobel Yazın Ödülü,

"Kentinin melankolik ruhunun izlerini sürerken kültürlerin birbirleriyle çatışması ve örülmesi için yeni simgeler bulan".

Orhan Pamuk'a verilmiştir.

Hahahahahaha! Aslan-you are so comic! Hahahaha! I am pissing my pants.

Hahahaha! What a motivation!

Well... my humble opinion: it would have been much fairer if the price in literature had been given to Yasar Kemal. (or to me)

I think this prize is important...not only for Orhan Pamuk as a writer...but to all Turkey! ...I insist...give the guy a chance...see his literal qualities and how he manage to introduce Turkey in all its complexity to the entire world!

...at least I am happy!
...and I suppose that Orhan Pamuk is too...since he won the most prestigious literature prize there is...and further more, over 1 million euro.

...hands off, gals!!! ...he is taken!
