Alice Munro Wins £60,000 Man Booker International Prize

alicemunroe.jpgAuthor Alice Munro (pictured, via) has won the third Man Booker International Prize, picked for the £60,000 (roughly $83,700) award out of a longlist that included 14 writers from 12 different countries.

The prize was judged by Andrey Kurkov, chair Jane Smiley, and Amit Chaudhuri.

The judges had this statement: “Alice Munro is mostly known as a short story writer and yet she brings as much depth, wisdom and precision to every story as most novelists bring to a lifetime of novels. To read Alice Munro is to learn something every time that you never thought of before.”
