Louise Glück's humour and universalism win over the Nobel Committee


American poet and essayist Louise Glück is this year's winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. We take a look at the author's signature themes of family, mythology and loss through her poem "The Drowned Children". Meanwhile, the passing of fashion visionary Kenzo Takada has prompted tributes from all over the world, with peers pointing out how he revolutionised Paris catwalks with his sense of fun and deconstructed forms.


We also take a look at a new exhibition from Renaissance woman Marjane Satrapi, as the illustrator, author and director shows off her talents as a painter.

And Paris's riverside booksellers are feeling the pinch as the Covid-19 downturn affects business for the city's "bouquinistes".
