Chinese author Mo Yan has won the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature. Jonathan Ruppin of UK bookstore Foyle's commented that: "There's been interest in Chinese literature in the last few years and people will be curious. He's clearly a very visionary and individual writer." The author, whose real name is Guan Moye, grew up as the son of farmers during the Cultural Revolution.
