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

Handke was awarded the 2019 title for "an influential work that with linguistic ingenuity has explored the periphery and the specificity of human experience".

The 2018 prize, delayed by one year after an assault scandal rocked the Swedish Academy, went to Tokarczuk for "a narrative imagination that with encyclopaedic passion represents the crossing of boundaries as a form of life".
