International Man Booker Winner

Hurrah! Alice Munro has won this year's International Man Booker Prize. This prize is given to honour a body of work, and comes with a value of 60,000 pounds! Wow. She certainly has an amazing body of work to be considered, with at least 14 books and one more forthcoming.

It could not have been won by a nicer person, or a more fabulous writer. Congratulations to our local girl, Alice Munro!


  1. I was very happy to hear this news as well!

  2. I agree - great choice by the prize committee.

  3. I was delighted to see Munro win, and can't wait for her new book!

  4. It's so great that she won. If a Canadian took the award, it shuld have been her with not really any contest!
