Alice Munro Wins Nobel Prize for Literature

Canadian author Alice Munro has been awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature—and a well deserved award this is. You say you don’t have time for long books?  Munro specializes in the short story, quiet unfoldings of (often) rural Canadian life that seem simple but excavate the deepest concerns of what being human entails.

Pick up any of her collections and you will be transported and changed. Now in her 80s, Munro says she has stopped writing, but you will have many of her collections to choose from. Find her online, at the library, or—if one still exists near you—in a bricks and mortar bookstore.
