HA NOI -- The Viet Nam Writers Association announced their annual awards early this week for 2010-11, recognising the best literature works of the year.
Prizes have been awarded to works in categories for novels, short stories, chronicles, poems, theory and criticism.
Taking the top prize for a novel was veteran writer Nguyen Xuan Khanh for his novel Doi Gao Len Chua (Bring Rice to the Pagoda). Khanh, 80, was won the same prize in 2003.
Four poetry books won prizes after no winner had emerged over the last three years. -- VNS
