    Alice Munro Wins Nobel Prize in Literature By JULIE BOSMAN Published: October 10, 2013

    "Alice Munro, the renowned Canadian short-story writer whose visceral work explores the tangled relationships between men and women, small-town existence and the fallibility of memory, won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature on Thursday. Ms. Munro, 82, is the 13th woman to win the prize.

    Announcing the award in Stockholm, the Swedish Academy said that Ms. Munro was a “master of the contemporary short story.” Ms. Munro, who lives in Clinton, a town in Ontario, told a writer from The Globe and Mail this year that she planned to retire after “Dear Life,” her 14th story collection." (more with a lovely photo the author)

    I checked my family tree (both branches) and the closest I could get to Germany was Norway so I'd have to say, no.
