Alice Munro Wins Literature Nobel

The Daily Beast

The Swedish Academy announced Thursday that Alice Munro, the Canadian author known for her short stories about life in southwestern Ontario, is the 2013 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature. The academy said it had not been able to reach the 82-year-old author, but had left a message.

 Munro won the Man Booker International Prize in 2009 and has twice won Canada’s Governor General’s Award for fiction. Munro has published 13 short-story collections, including her debut, Dance of the Happy Shades (1968), which won her first Governor award, and The Progress of Love, which won the award exactly three decades later.
