French Writer Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio Wins Nobel Prize

The 2008 Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to French writer Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio. The announcement described Le Clézio as an "author of new departures, poetic adventure and sensual ecstasy, explorer of a humanity beyond and below the reigning civilization."
