French writer Annie Ernaux receives the Nobel Prize for Literature

STOCKHOLM — This year’s Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to French author Annie Ernaux.

Ernaux, 82, was cited for “the courage and clinical acumen with which she discovers the roots, the remoteness and the collective constraints of personal memory”, the Nobel committee said.

Mats Malm, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, announced the winner Thursday in Stockholm, Sweden.

A week of Nobel Prize announcements kicked off on Monday with the Medicine Prize honoring a scientist who unlocked the secrets of Neanderthal DNA.

Three scientists jointly won the physics prize on Tuesday for showing that tiny particles can maintain a connection with each other even when separated.

The chemistry prize was awarded Wednesday to three scientists who have developed ways to connect molecules that can be used to design more targeted drugs.

They continue with Chemistry on Wednesdays and Literature on Thursdays. The 2022 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday and the Economics Prize on October 10.
