The 2005 Nobel Prize for Literature

This year’s Nobel Prize for Literature announcement comes at 11 GMT (7 EST).

If you, unlike those of us who stagger wild-haired from bed three minutes before we need to leave for work, are awake at 7, try the official site. Relevant news coverage, arranged in order of the time posted, will be available here.

Update: By now you’ll have heard that the award went to playwright Harold Pinter. The Guardian has excerpts from the academy’s citation.
