Alice Munro wins the Nobel!. . .
Alice Munro has won the Nobel Prize for Literature!
Most Canadian women of a certain age (ahem, mine) probably read either The Lives of Girls and Women or Who Do You Think You Are? during their teenage years and became a fan for life. I am just over the moon at this news and I wonder - will it give short stories (she's never written a novel) a new prestige and popular boost among the reading public? I think it's definitely time to reread some of her work.
