The entire nation overflowed with excitement as a Chinese author was pronounced the winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature at the Swedish Academy in Stockholm on October 11.

“I was very glad when I heard about the news. But I think it doesn’t mean much,” said the new Nobel laureate Mo Yan, in his typical calm manner.
