I am so ignorant I always thought she was American. Nadia May 27, 2009 at 8:54 am That is awesome news!! Thanks for informing us! Max Cairnduff May 27, 2009 at 11:48 am If it helps comfort you Candy, I hadn’t even heard of her, which is probably worse than a confusion as to nationality. KevinfromCanada May 27, 2009 at 12:30 pm 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. Deucekindred May 27, 2009 at 2:33 pm When I first read the news this morning I did smile – Munro deserves it 100%! Max Cairnduff May 27, 2009 at 3:18 pm 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. Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
