Nobel scandal: The secretive Swedish committee that selects the winner of the Nobel Prize in literature has been rocked by resignations over sexual-assault allegations. Some members of the Swedish Academy tried to oust Katarina Frostenson, a celebrated poet, from the literature body after her husband, Jean-Claude Arnault, was accused of assaulting 18 women, including other female academy members and members’ wives and daughters. When Frostenson survived the vote last week, three of the committee’s 18 members quit. Arnault is the director of a Stockholm arts venue, and the allegations against him surfaced last November as part of the #MeToo movement outing sexual harassers. He denies any wrongdoing.
