Austrian novelist and playwright Elfriede Jelinek wins the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Swedish Academy cited her ability to reveal "the absurdity of society's clichés and their subjugating power." Since the prize was first awarded in 1901, only nine women have won it. NPR's Renee Montagne talks to NPR's Neda Ulaby.
