In today’s Frankfurt print edition of Publishing Perspectives, we ran a story about Peruvian-born author Mario Vargas Llosa’s Nobel Prize win, featuring quotes from some of his international publishers. One quote that came in after the issue went to press was from the UK.
Faber & Faber Chief Executive Stephen Page said, “We are absolutely thrilled by the announcement that Mario Vargas Llosa is to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He is a modern master, whose themes and subjects cross continents, centuries and genres. Whether it be fiction, non-fiction, reportage or literary essay, his work is always deeply human, fearless and universal. We are extremely proud to have published such a great storyteller for many years and now we have an opportunity to bring an even larger readership to his wonderful work.”
