Women are really marking their territory when it comes to writing fiction. Four out of the six nominees announced on Tuesday by the 2013 Man Booker Prize committee, the shortlist of finalists for its prize, were women.

They are; Indian American Jhumpa Lahiri, Japanese Canadian Ruth Ozeki, Eleanor Catton from New Zealand, Jim Crace and Colm Toibin, both British, and Zimbabwean NoViolet Bulawayo. All the best to them, and fingers crossed for Jhumpa and Noviolet, I've read both and they're very good.
