Today is the eighty-third birthday of Nobel Prize-winning Canadian writer Alice Munro, who is almost synonymous with the modern short story. This is from the official Nobel Prize website:

Munro has been appreciated for her finely tuned storytelling, characterized by clarity and psychological realism. Her stories are often set in small town environments, where people’s struggle for a decent life often result in difficult relationships and moral conflicts. 

Also, her stories are great reads. Titles: Dear Life; Lives of Girls and Women; Runaway; The Progress of Love; and many more.

Next week on The Book Under Her Bed: a list of short story writers for your summer reading pleasure.  There’s only one Alice Munro, but there are other writers who come close. Feel free to submit your own candidates; I’ll post them.
