China's Mo Yan won the Nobel Prize(2012) in Literature

Mo Yan is the first Chinese to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Er.. For some political reasons, he is also reported in mainland China as the first(actually 3rd, perhaps?) Chinese to win a Nobel Prize.

It's reported he said his English name was "shut up" during the award ceremony, is that true? I missed the live. Sad Just want to confirm it~

I thought Haruki Murakami would win it before that news a week ago~ Few people(I mean, ordinary people, perhaps Mo is famous enough in Literature) had known about Mo Yan before he won the Nobel Prize. Instead, many readers are fans of Murakami, even in China.
I know fame isn't everything~ But the result did shock me more or less~ Very Happy
