Alice Munro wins in every way

Amazing news about Alice Munro just out. Thanks to the alert Bookman Beattie for finding it. Beattie's Book Blog has more. And so does The Guardian - including comments from Jane Smiley who declares her, like Mary Poppins, 'practically perfect': 'Her thoughtfulness about every subject is so concentrated.'

It also appears the Canadian short story writer - a favourite of mine - hasn't hung up her skates after all. Look what's out in October this year. I can't wait.
