The Chinese writer Mo Yan, New Nobel Prize Literature 2012

Mo Yan, Nobel Prize Literature 2012, according to the words of the Swedish Academy is a writer ‘who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary’

Nobel Prize Literature 2012: Mo Yan

Nobel Prize Literature 2012: Mo Yan

(Just for curiosity, his real name is Guan Moye, Mo Yan means, more or less ‘don’t speak’) My congratulations to Mo Yan but…  The Swedish Academy has two different criteria to award each year, and maybe they don’t hit every day but (and of course, Mo Yan is a great writer) when I see these prizes I always ask to myself: are there any politic motivation to award? When Herman Hesse won the prize he recognized that he won it because he was in the opposite side to the Nazis and that was the real reason why they gave him the Nobel Prize… there are many more cases but, of course, the authors are not guilty of this situation. They need to narrate and create worlds and they do fine.

The only sad thing here is that, once more, everybody can see shadows flying again in the Nobel Prize and I mean in Literature.

Congratulations Mo Yan and the prize must wait another year, Murakami. You were my favorite because I am not nominated. If I were, my opinion were very different.

Have a nice day.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
