Alice Munro Wins the Nobel Prize for Literature


Yes, this blog post is a few days late in coming, but I got quite enthusiastic about this piece of news for two major reasons:

  1. She’s one of the few female authors to receive this award. If you go over the award winners list, it’s shocking just how few female authors are on there.
  2. She’s one of the few Nobel prize winning authors that I have actually read. I loved her collection of short stories Dear Life that I read earlier this year, and I can happily state that her writing is both accessible yet literary.

Great choice!

    It’s amazing to see a woman win the award again as you say! A fascinatingly accomplished writer, very much well deserved.
