The judges said of her work:
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.Art and Culture.com says of her work :

Munro's most recent collection of stories is The View from Castle Rock.
