Alice Munro wins International Booker Prize

Yay! Canadian writer Alice Munro wins International Booker Prize:
The panel, which comprised writers Jane Smiley, Amit Chaudhuri and Andrey Kurkov, praised the 77-year-old for the originality and depth of her work.

'Alice Munro is mostly known as a short story writer and yet she brings as much depth, wisdom and precision to every story as most novelists bring to a lifetime of novels,' they said.

'To read Alice Munro is to learn something every time that you never thought of before.'
