Author Alice Munro died today at the age of ninety-two.

Munro has won both the Man Booker International Prize and the Nobel Prize in Literature for a lifetime of excellence in short-story writing, as seen in collections like The Love of a Good WomanHateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage; and Runaway.

Obituaries are out everywhere, including in the CBC, the Guardian, NPR, the Associated Press, and The New York Times.

There are plenty of reflective pieces, too, such as Gregory Cowles's essay on her ability to show the richness of an ordinary life, and Joe Cummings's commentary on how her small-town roots and focus became synonymous with, of all outlets, The New Yorker.
