Alice Munro, 82, is the first Canadian and the 13th woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and there were joyous reactions on Twitter for her momentous win.
Alice Munro’s first story was published at age 37. From then on she proceeded to write about relationships and the drama that goes with them in her short stories and novels.
Reportedly, she would receive 8 million Swedish Kronor, and, of course, the prestige of being the first Canadian to receive the prestigious Nobel Prize in Literature.
On Twitter, Canadians and fans rejoiced in her triumph, just as the notable author predicted.
“I’m over the moon happy with your accomplishments.”
