Alice Munro, Nobel Prize Winner

There is justice in the world! It has just been announced that one of our greatest living writers, Alice Munro, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Several Commonweal contributors, including myself, have written on Munro in the recent past:

Dominic Preziosi on Dear Life

Anthony Domestico on "Haven"

Richard Alleva on a film adapation of "The Bear Came Over the Mountain"

And Jonathan Franzen wrote a wonderful celebration of her work a few years ago in the NYT.
