Munro wins international Booker

Canadian short story author Alice Munro has won the third Man Booker International Prize.
She saw off competition from 13 other nominees, including Australian two-time Booker winner Peter Carey and Briton James Kelman, to win the £60,000 award. It is given every two years to a living author for an entire body of work that has contributed to fiction across the world stage. Munro, 77, who lives in Ontario, said: "I am totally amazed and delighted."
