Nobel Prize Literature Laureate Speeches by Michalle

Question 4

Which American writer said this, at the Nobel banquet in 1993? "Early in October an artist friend left a message which I kept on the answering service for weeks and played back every once in a while just to hear the trembling pleasure in her voice and the faith in her words. 'My dear sister," she said, "the prize that is yours is also ours and could not have been placed in better hands.' The spirit of her message with its earned optimism and sublime trust marks this day for me."
