Alice Munro, the renowned Canadian short-story writer whose visceral work explores the tangled relationships between men and women, small-town existence and the fallibility of memory, won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday.



Alice Munro, a Canadian master of the short story revered as a thorough but forgiving documenter of the human spirit, won the Nobel Prize in literature on Thursday, the Swedish Academy said.

Munro, 82, is the first Canadian writer to receive the prestigious $1.2 million award since Saul Bellow, who left for the U.S. as a boy and won in 1976.

Seen as a modern Chekhov for her warmth, insight and compassion, she has captured a wide range of lives and personalities without passing judgment on her characters.

She is beloved among her peers, from Lorrie Moore and George Saunders to Margaret Atwood and Jonathan Franzen. She is equally admired by critics. She won a National Book Critics Circle prize forHateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, and is a three-time winner of the Governor General's prize, Canada's highest literary honor.

"I knew I was in the running, yes, but I never thought I would win," Munro said by telephone when contacted by the Canadian Press in Victoria, British Columbia.

The award is likely to be the capstone to her career. Munro told Canada's National Post in June that she was "probably not going to write anymore."

The permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, Peter Englund, said he had not managed to get hold of her but left a message on her answering machine.

"She has taken an art form, the short story, which has tended to come a little bit in the shadow behind the novel, and she has cultivated it almost to perfection," Englund told the Associated Press.

Munro is the 13th female literature laureate in the 112-year history of the Nobel Prizes. Fellow Canadian writer Atwood – who also figured prominently in the Nobel buzz – Tweeted "Hooray! Alice Munro wins 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature."
