Mo Yan's Nobel prize for literature sparks celebration in China
Eric Abrahamsen on Mo Yan:
"He was instrumental in reviving Chinese literary language after the Cultural Revolution," said Abrahamsen. "He has also done the best job of tackling the big social and historical issues, I think more successfully than anyone else has, taking historical facts and turned them into convincing art. That's enough, right there, to win the Nobel."
