Alice Munro wins Man Booker International
We were all quite excited to hear this news, since Alice Munro is Canadian (like us) and has close ties to Victoria (where AbeBooks HQ is located).
Back in 1951 Alice married James Munro and the couple moved west and had some children. In 1966 they opened Munro’s Books, a Victoria landmark and one of the nicest bookstores you will find in Canada.
So a big congratulations to Alice Munro, I’m sure she will enjoy the £60,000 prize.
