Toronto: Canadian literary icon Alice Munro, celebrated worldwide for her exceptional short stories and honored with the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2013, has passed away at 92. A spokesperson from Penguin Random House Canada confirmed her death at her home in Port Hope, Ontario. Munro, who had been in fragile health for some time, had previously expressed intentions to retire after her 2012 collection, “Dear Life.” Despite initially limited recognition outside of Canada, Munro’s talent propelled her to international acclaim, with her works enjoying significant commercial success, including sales of over 1 million copies in North America alone. Titles such as “Too Much Happiness,” “The View from Castle Rock,” and “The Love of a Good Woman” further cemented her legacy as one of the most revered short story writers of all time.
