Canadian Nobel-winning author Alice Munro dies aged 92

TEHRAN, May 15 (MNA) – Alice Munro, the Nobel Prize-winning Canadian author known for her mastery of the short story, has died at the age of 92.

Munro died at her home in Port Hope, Ontario, publisher Kristin Cochrane, chief executive officer of McClelland & Stewart, said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Alice’s writing inspired countless writers … and her work leaves an indelible mark on our literary landscape,” Cochrane said, Al Jazeera reported.

Munro published more than a dozen collections of short stories, which she focused on the frailties of the human condition and set in the rural Ontario countryside where she grew up.

Munro was born on July 10, 1931, in Wingham, Ontario.

Munro decided she wanted to be a writer when she was 11, and never wavered in her career choice.
