... of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Literature... Harold Pinter!!! What a surprise!

A very famous and influential Brittish playwright (no, I have yet to see or read a play of his, I lamost caught "Old times" in London... almost). He is most famous for the uncomfortable stretches of silence in his plays, in which the characters seemingly find it very hard to communicate with each other. Cool.

It's great for the Swedish Academy to recognize theater as another form of literature. Hoo-ray for Harold!
