    But Norway does not belong to European Union. Other Nobel prizes are given by Sweden, the peace prize by Norway.

    Say what you want about the EU, but it's no coincidence that Europe has had the most peaceful period in its entire history since its inception.

    Plus, we can do with the prize money. Every little bit helps. :lol:

    Thanks. :) Most bookish people I follow online say to start with The Garlic Ballads. Someone said one of his English translations was terrible, but not sure which one. And Penguin is now hurrying to re-issue Red Sorghum. I'll have to check them both out.
