Alice Munro received the Nobel Prize in Literature this week. You can read the New York Times article about it here.
Munro is a short story writer whose work I've found moving and beautifully written. I even wrote a paper on her stories in college. It feels a little like my team won the playoffs...of literature. Not a great analogy, but if you'd like to read some better prose I highly recommend Alice Munro.
If you'd like to read her stories, you can request some of her books from Gwinnett County Public Library here.
If you don't want to wait, you can find several of her stories online for free via this post at Open Culture.
