Ngugi wa Thiong'o has been heavily tipped by the bookies to win this year's Nobel Literature prize. It would be fantastic for him to win - it would mean Africans from South, West and East have won the prize.
Egypt’s Naguib Mahfouz was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature in 1988 so North Africa, too, has its representative in the Nobel literature prize hall of fame.
