Alice Munro’s Runaway
Alice Munro is from Canada.
She is the 2013 Nobel Laureate for fiction.
Munro writes short stories.
Here’s a link describing her work, etc.: Where to start with Alice Munro, the newest Nobel laureate for fiction · The A.V. Club.
The third book I downloaded from the library and am listening to while I quilt is Munro’s Runaway.
I’m a bit into the story of the title and am really impressed with how Munro writes, what she says, and the characters she draws.
She has been compared to Chekov.
Personally, I think so many good writers come from Canada because they have a real winter.
That winter gives them time to reflect and to think.
Oh my goodness! What they dream up!
