Fact or Crap?


Fact or Crap?®


Jean-Paul Sartre is the only writer to have refused the Nobel Prize for Literature.







CRAP! Actually, Boris Pasternak also refused, but was forced to do so by the Soviet government. Sartre is the only winner of the Nobel Fiction prize to have voluntarily refused. He did so on the grounds that such honors conflicted with a writer’s responsibilities to his readers.
