Congratulations to Nobel Prize in Literature Winner, Alice Munro!


Alice Munro Won the Nobel Prize in Literature Thursday, making her the first Canadian writer to take the award.
For more than forty years, Alice Munro's reputation has steadily grown to a point where she is today recognized as one of the finest living short story writers - and now a Nobel Prize winner!  She is often compared to Chekhov for her fastidiously structured plots and psychological complexity, she has won the admiration of writers and readers around the world. From her early success with Dance of the Happy Shades to her most recent collections, Munro has steadily proven that short stories can be just as intricate, moving, and formidable as the best novels.
