Nobel Prize in Literature: The most prestigious award in world books goes to...

ENCORE! France 24

Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria's Peter Handke are the new queen and king of literature. This year's winner and last year's winner have been announced together, because the prize was cancelled in 2018 over a sexual harassment scandal. Sarah Rigaud from the French publisher Les Escales and FRANCE 24's book critic Catherine Khédir-Clifford speak to Eve Jackson about the significance of the selection by the Swedish academy, who are trying to recover from the biggest scandal in their history.
