Alice Munroe wins Nobel Prize in Literature 2013

Alice Munroe is 8 million Swedish krones richer today!  As The New York Times states today:

"The Nobel, one of the most prestigious and lucrative prizes in the world, is given to a writer for a lifetime’s body of work, rather than a single novel, short story or collection. The winner receives 8 million Swedish kronor, or about $1.2 million.
Previous winners in recent years include Mo Yan, a Chinese writer, in 2012; the Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer, in 2011; Mario Vargas Llosa, the Peruvian writer, in 2010; and in 2009, Herta Müller, a Romanian-born German novelist and essayist...."
I love her short stories and we are all happy for our neighbor in Canada.  As you can see some of my friends in Stockholm were happy to hear the news - HAPPYstlhm in Stockholm, Sweden's Gamla Stan is throwing a party in her honor! Heja Alice!
