I just read in the paper that my friend Daniel has received an award by a labour foundation for making high quality literature interesting and accessible to a broader public. For you who are not Swedish, Daniel is (besides being a renowned author) the main host and writer of the literature show Babel on Swedish public service TV. So lots of congrats to Daniel – I am SO proud of you!!!! Not for the award of course but for what you have accomplished. Anyone who has explored the wonderful world of literature that is out there would wish for as many as possible to discover this and to experience the joy of reading a good book. Daniel, what you are doing is amazingly cool!!
