STOCKHOLM, Oct 2 (Reuters) - The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2009 will be annouced on Oct. 8, the Swedish Academy which hands out the 10 million crown ($1.42 million) award said on Friday.

Israeli novelist Amos Oz, who was widely tipped last year when Frenchman Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio bagged the award, is the favourite to win, according to bookmakers Ladbrokes. Second-favourite is Algerian novelist Assia Djebar.
