AP PHOTOS: Notable Nobel Literature winners from the past

FILE – In this Monday, Oct. 8, 1991 file photo, South African writer Nadine Gordimer is pictured at an interview during a two-day visit to the University of Massachusetts. Gordimer became in 1991 the first woman in 25 years to win the Nobel Prize in Literature for her “magnificent epic writing.” Gordimer’s stories, such as “The Conservationist,” helped bring to the world’s attention the effects of apartheid on everyday life in South Africa. This year’s winner is to be announced on Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017. (AP Photo/Lisa Bul, file)
