Alice Munro's quiet, precise works lead to Nobel Prize in literature
Alice Munro was nowhere to be found on Thursday morning when the Swedish Academy awarded her the Nobel Prize in literature.

The short story writer surfaced briefly for a quick interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., and then dropped out of sight.
