Alice Munro, reviewed by L.A. Times: 'casually impeccable,' 'genius'
Alice Munro, who won the Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday, lives a quiet life in a small town in Ontario, Canada. When the Los Angeles Times' Susan Salter Reynolds visited her in 2006, she explained that she was a "weird" teenager. "I was already deep into being a writer. I went to a dance. Nobody danced with me. This bewildered and annoyed me. I never went to a dance again."
