Pinter to Miss Nobel Ceremony
Harold Pinter, the British playwright who was awarded this year's Nobel Prize for Literature, will be unable to attend the December 7 award ceremony due to poor health, reports the BBC.
Pinter, who is 75, has been treated for cancer and doctors have forbidden him to travel, the Nobel Committee announced.
Mr. Pinter has recorded a speech which will be played at the ceremony and publisher Stephen Page will accept the prize on his behalf.
