Tom Stoppard wins the PEN Pinter Prize.

Playwright Tom Stoppard has been announced as the winner of the 2013 PEN/Pinter prize, celebrating a lifetime of literary achievement and his campaigning work in the field of human rights.

Founded in 2009 by the freedom-of-expression writers’ group English PEN in Pinter’s memory, the prize is awarded annually to a British writer or writer resident in Britain who, in the words of Pinter’s Nobel literature prize speech in 2005, casts an “unflinching, unswerving” gaze upon the world and shows a “fierce intellectual determination … to define the real truth of our lives and our societies.”
