Last Sunday, Judy Stoffman of the Toronto Star updates a story we first heard back in June, with more information about Alice Munro‘s announcement that she’s all done now. And Stoffman thinks she might actually mean it this time when she says “she has used up all her material and has nothing left to say,” too, although other observers who have heard similar protests of retirement aren’t so sure. Still, Munro told one reporter she’s only got four unpublished stories left in the can, and she’s even said to have told fans at a signing she wasn’t going to write anymore. So who knows? Maybe she really is calling it quits…or maybe her retirement will progress in the productive manner of Stephen King‘s. Let’s watch and see.
