Nobel Prize in Literature


During this week before the Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockolm and Oslo, December 10, we present the Nobel Prize winners and what they have received the prize for.

The Nobel Prize in Literature is awared to the Canadian author with the words

”master of the contemporary short story”

Words which perhaps take thier inspiration from the author herself: short and precise. Alice Munro often writes about the lives of small town women and is known for clarity and psycoplogical realism. She debuted in 1968 as a novelist and the debute was awarded the most prestigious litarature prize in Canada. She has since then published a number of novels.

Alice Munro is born 1931 in Wingham, Canada.
