Patrick Modiano, a historical novelist haunted by France's painful experience of Nazi occupation and his own childhood wounds, won the Nobel Literature Prize last Thursday. The Swedish Academy said it wanted to celebrate his "art of memory" in capturing the lives of ordinary people during German rule, which lasted from 1940 to 1944 in France.

Comics are serious business in the land of Tintin and The Smurfs, and nowhere more so than in Europe's biggest and oldest museum dedicated to the art form as the venue celebrates its 25th birthday.

Actor Hugh Grant, who became the poster boy for the charming British fop in romantic comedies such as "Four Weddings and a Funeral" and "Notting Hill," is delighted not to be part of Hollywood anymore.
