Nobel Literature winner to be announced Oct 7!

This year's Nobel Prize for Literature will be announced on October 7, the Swedish Academy which hands out the 10 million Swedish crown ($1.49 million) award said on Friday.

Swedish poet and writer Tomas Transtromer is the bookmakers' favorite to win the prize, ahead of three other poets: Poland's Adam Zagajewski, South Korea's Ko Un and Syria's Adonis.

The winner of the award, which can thrust relatively obscure authors into the international limelight, is notoriously difficult to guess, with a series of surprises in recent years.
