Excellent news from the literary awards arena. Alice Munro has been awarded the Man Booker International Prize!

I’m sure that will make KFC very proud!

  1. I just saw that. I am so ignorant I always thought she was American.

    That is awesome news!! Thanks for informing us!

  3. If it helps comfort you Candy, I hadn’t even heard of her, which is probably worse than a confusion as to nationality.

  4. Shame on you both, Candy and Max — Alice is about as iconic as a Canadian can get. I do plan on pulling one of her collections out for a reread and will post as soon as possible. The NY Times review of her last book did proclaim her the best short story writer in the world today.

    When I first read the news this morning I did smile – Munro deserves it 100%!

  6. I look forward to reading your review Kevin, and making up for this gap in my knowledge.

    Short stories are generally very poorly promoted in the UK, though here I fear it’s simply an oversight on my part.
