No Nobel Prize
THERE will be no 2018 Nobel literature prize as the academy struggles to recover from a sex scandal.
Frenchman Jean-Claude Arnault, married to an Nobel Academy member, was accused of rape and sexual assault and it was then discovered conflicts of interest between him and the academy, which had funded his club for years. Arnault’s verdict is due on Monday.
Now the 2018 laureate will be announced at the same time as the 2019 prize.
