3 books by Nobel winner Alexievich coming out in US

NEW YORK (AP) — Three books by Nobel laureate Svetlana Alexievich will be released in the U.S. by Random House.

The publisher announced Monday that it had acquired rights to the Belarusian journalist's "Second-Hand Time," to come out in 2016, and "War's Unwomanly Face" and "Last Witnesses," scheduled for 2017.

The 67-year-old Alexievich last month became the first nonfiction writer in decades to win the Nobel literature prize. She was praised by the Swedish Academy for "her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time." Her best known work, "Voices From Chernobyl," was published a decade ago by Dalkey Archive Press.
