Alice Munro is the winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize. The prize is awarded once every two years to a living author for a body of work that has contributed to an achievement in fiction on the world stage. Munro's latest collection of short stories, Too Much Happiness, will be published this fall by Knopf. Her previous books can be found here. Judge Jane Smiley says, "Her work is practically perfect. Any writer has to gawk when reading her because her work is very subtle and precise. Her thoughtfulness about every subject is so concentrated." She will be presented with a trophy and a check for £60,000 at a ceremony at Trinity College in Dublin on June 25th.
