Alice Munro won the coveted Giller prize for her fictional short story collection, Runaway. Munro accepted the 25-thousand dollar award during a gala black-tie ceremony November 11th at a hotel in downtown Toronto. Munro had a message for those people in her past who would tell her they didn't read fiction because they just didn't get what it was about. (Runaway is comprised of eight tales dealing with the inner lives of women. It's the second Giller prize for the 73-year-old who lives in Clinton, Ontario.)
