Stockholm, Oct 11 (RDI): The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2012 was awarded on Thursday to Chinese writer Mo Yan.
The Swedish Academy which confers the Nobel Prize said Yan is a writer ´who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary´.

57-year-old Guan Moye, who is better known by the pen name Mo Yan, was born in the northeast Gaomi township in Shandong province of China to a family of farmers.

He left school during the Cultural Revolution to work in a factory that produced oil. He joined the People´s Liberation Army at age twenty, and began writing while he was still a soldier, in 1981.

Three years later, he was given a teaching position at the Department of Literature in the Army´s Cultural Academy.

Mo Yan has published dozens of short stories and novels in Chinese. His first novel was ´Falling Rain on a Spring Night´, published in 1981.

He is known in the West for two of his novels which were the basis of the film ´Red Sorghum´.

Yan´s noted works include ´Big Breasts & Wide Hips´ and ´The Republic of Wine: A Novel´.
