Alice Munro

Alice Munro was born in Wingham, Ontario. “My father was a fox farmer,” she wrote in a 1968 story. “He raised silver foxes, in pens; and in the fall and early winter, when their fur was prime, he killed them and skinned them and sold their pelts to the Hudson’s Bay Company or the Montreal Fur Traders.” She has written fourteen books of stories, including Lives of Girls and Women, Runaway, and, most recently, Dear Life. Munro won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013.
