Author Bio
Alice Munro
Born in Wigham, Ontario, Alice Munro attended the University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1951. That year she married James Munro, founded the beloved Munro's Books bookstore in Victoria, and had three daughters before getting divorced in 1976. She married Gerald Fremlin in 1976. Except for two early novels-in-stories, LIVES OF GIRLS AND WOMEN and THE BEGGAR MAID, Munro writes only short stories, although she said in a 1998 interview, "My ambition is to write a novel before I die." Her work has won her many awards and the nearly unremitting praise of other authors for the depth and richness of her characters, her startling shifts in time and perspective, her strong grasp of regionalism, and her Chekhovian ability to encompass large novelistic themes in relatively few pages . She appears with regularity in The Best American Short Stories series. Her recent book THE VIEW FROM CASTLE ROCK blends short fiction with true stories from her life and the lives of her ancestors. In 2009, Alice Munro won the Man Booker International Prize for lifetime achievement.

Praise

"That Alice Munro, now 81, is one of the great short story writers not just of our time but of any time ought to go without saying by now. This new volume...is further proof of her mastery...,Over the years her work has deepened and enlarged. [These stories] seem to me as good as anything she has ever done, but also to strike out in the direction of a new, late style--one that is not so much a departure as a compressing or summing up of her whole career." - Charles McGrath 11/18/2012
