A Well-Deserved Honor


Canadian short story writer Alice Munro has won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, and I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more. For years, Munro has written engaging and beautifully styled accounts based on her life on the Canadian prairies. I was introduced to her work by her story “Boys and Girls,” which was a selection in the sophomore anthology we used when I taught English.

The story is available as a link and well worth anyone’s time to read it: http://womeninlit.tripod.com/alicemunro.htm  Congratulations, Alice Munro!
