Chinese writer Mo Yan was awarded the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature for his work that "with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary." He is the country's first Nobel laureate in literature.

Born Guan Moye (管谟业), the author writes under the pen name Mo Yan, which means "don't speak" in Chinese.

His major novels include "Red Sorghum," "The Garlic Ballads," "Big Breasts and Wide Hips," "Frog," "The Republic of Wine," "Life and Death Are Wearing Me Out," and "Sandalwood Death."
