Prize-Winner Pinter in Demand

Following the announcement last week that the English playwright Harold Pinter had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Rowohlt publishing house, which has released the German versions of a novel and some of his plays, has recorded an "overwhelming demand" for the 75-year-old's work. Shortly after the announcement, he was repeatedly referred to as an almost forgotten author, but now Pinter is back in the minds and memories of the people. Speaking at the book fair in the German city of Frankfurt, Rowohlt spokesman Ursula Steffens said she hoped to see the new-found popularity reflected in the repertoires of theaters across the country.
