Back in June, celebrated Canadian short fiction writer Alice Munro announced she was leaving writing to finally relax and enjoy her friends and family. Then, earlier this month, she was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Now, it seems she may still have more to say. In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Munro admits, “I have promised to retire but now and then I get an idea.”
After forty years of prolific writing, Munro has certainly earned a break. We must admit, however, we’re still kind of hoping she elects to put a few more of those ideas onto the page.
