Canadian short story author Alice Munro won the prestigious Nobel Prize for Literature. She became the 110th Nobel laureate in literature and only the 13th woman to receive the distinction. In bestowing the honor, the Nobel committee called Munro the "master of the contemporary short story." The 82-year old said she couldn't believe she had won. (Munro was the first Canadian-based writer to secure the honor. Saul Bellow won in 1976, but he left Canada for the US as a boy.)
