Polish, Austrian authors win Nobel Prize for Literature

Stockholm :  Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria’s Peter Handke have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, it was announced on Thursday.

Two winners were named – one for 2019 and one for 2018 – because last year’s prize was not awarded, reports the BBC.

The Swedish Academy, which oversees the prestigious award, suspended it last year after a sexual assault scandal.
