"Munro, the renowned Canadian short-story writer whose visceral work explores the tangled relationships between men and women, small-town existence and the fallibility of memory, won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday. Ms. Munro, 82, is the 13th woman to win the prize. Announcing the award in Stockholm, the Swedish Academy said that Ms. Munro was a “master of the contemporary short story.” In a statement from Penguin Random House, her publisher, Ms. Munro said that she was “amazed, and very grateful” for the prize." - Read it here from The New York Times.
