“Hala Gorani talks to The New Yorker’s Deborah Treisman about Alice Munro’s 2013 Nobel Prize for literature.” – YT
“The 82-year-old, whose books include Dear Life and Dance of the Happy Shades, is only the 13th woman to win the prize since its inception in 1901.
“I knew I was in the running, yes, but I never thought I would win,” Munro told Canadian media.
“Presented by the Nobel Foundation, the award – which is presented to a living writer – is worth eight million kronor (£770,000).
“Previous winners include literary giants such as Rudyard Kipling, Toni Morrison and Ernest Hemingway.
“Mr Englund told The Associated Press that he had not been able to contact Munro ahead of the announcement so left a message on her answering machine, informing her of her win.” – BBCNews
