Alice Munro's territory is the farms and semi-rural towns of south- western Ontario.

Alice Munro's territory is the farms and semi-rural towns of south- western Ontario. Described by one of her peers as going around with a 'delicate, rueful smile and a wicked pen', she says of herself: 'I guess that maybe as a writer I'm kind of an anachronism...because I write about places where your roots are and most people don't live that kind of life anymore at all. Most writers, probably, the writers who are most in tune with our time, write about places that have no texture because this is where most of us live.' In these powerful tales she brings the landscape of her childhood back to life as she deals with the self-discovery and guilt of those caught in a narrow existence. And in sensitively exploring the lives of ordinary men and women, she makes us aware of the universal nature of their fears, sorrows and aspirations.

ALICE MUNRO

(Wingham, Ontario, 1931). Conocida como la "Chejov canadiense" ella misma se declara en deuda con autoras de la talla de Flannery O Connor, Catherine Anne Porter y Eudora Welty. Alice Munro se ha convertido en una de las grandes escritoras de cuentos del siglo XX, con una obra que comenzó en 1950. A lo largo de su carrera, Alice Munro ha recibido los premios de mayor prestigio, entre los que cabe destacar el Man Booker International Prize, el National Book Critics Circle estadounidense, el Governor General's Literary Awards y en España el Premio Reino de Redonda en 2005. El Peremio Nobel de Literatura 2013 viene a reconcer el enorme talento de una de las escritoras canadienses más importantes de toda la historia. Ver ficha del autor
