Nobel Prize = "A Bloody Disaster"

Today (May 12th) Doris Lessing told BBC Radio 4's Front Row that winning the 2007 Nobel Prize for Literature has been "a bloody disaster" because the increased media interest has sapped her energy to write. Lessing says, "This is why I keep telling anyone younger than me, don't imagine you'll have it forever. Use it while you've got it because it'll go, it's sliding away like water down a plughole."
