Alice Munro, Canadian short story writer, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Generous tribute from Margaret Atwood, whom I would have thought deserved it herself. But Munro's not undeserving either. I haven't read as much of her as I'd like.
Anyone else read her?

we remain, thanks to original sin, much in love with talking about, rather than with, one another. Rowan Williams

I'm convinced I have. Can't remember what. Reading a list of titles doesn't ring any bells. Still, the name sounds familiar. The covers on the books looks familiar. I've read a ton of short stories.

She is a national treasure. The literary community across the country is all abuzz, and her publisher must be frantically but delightedly getting out reprints.

Somebody sent me this link to stories of hers published in the New Yorker -- I haven't gone through them yet, but apparently some are behind a paywall and some freely available.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea. St-Exupery
