    > Polish novelist Olga Tokarczuk and Austrian author Peter Handke have both won the Nobel prize in literature.

    > To a packed room at the Swedish Academy in Stockholm on Thursday, the permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy Mats Malm announced Tokarczuk as 2018's Nobel literature laureate, and Handke as 2019's winner.

    > The selections of Handke and Tokarczuk come days after the Swedish Academy promised to move away from the "Male-oriented" and "Eurocentric" past of the Nobel prize in literature, and follow an unprecedented two years of scandal at the august body, which hopes to restore its reputation with this year's choices.
