Two women & two prizes

It is an object of pride that two women won the most important two prizes this year, as the German Herta Müller (56 years old) was awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature for her last novel (Everything I Possess I Carry With Me), while the English Hilary Mantel (57 years old) was awarded the 2009 Man Booker prize for her novel (Wolf Hall).

On the other hand, the Egyptian story club announced the 2008 prizes of novel on September 28, 2009 and as usual no female won!!!
