    I haven’t read any books from Munro. I think with this win, people like me will pick up her books and read them. Thanks for the news!

    I haven’t heard of Svetlana Alexievich before. Thanks for writing about her. She looks like a fascinating writer. It is wonderful the Alice Munro won the Nobel. Well deserved and it is also a tribute to the art of the short story.
