The Swedish Academy announced today that Canadian author Alice Munro won the 2013 Nobel Prize for Literature. The New York Times described Munro’s work as exploring “the tangled relationships between men and women, small-town existence and the fallibility of memory.”

Munro worked as a library clerk while attending the University of Western Ontario, and some of her stories, like “Carried Away” and “Hard-Luck Stories,” feature librarians.
