Orhan Pamuk

Orhan Pamuk

Orhan Pamuk wins the Nobel Prize for Literature, although I really believe it's a Nobel Prize for enduring stupid law-suit from your country.

He's not the only Turkish writer who has been sued recently for "anti-Turkishness" - Elif Shafak comes to mind. But I guess he's the most famous.
